a) If you paid your speeding ticket after a hearing from a judge and asked for a "no contest" - most likely the judge has done an "adjudication withheld" which is NOT a guilty verdict.

b) the statement in I485 specifically asks if you are guilty of offenses other than traffic violations

So in all likelyhood - not much of an impact on your GC, but be very careful - repeat offenders do not get an "adjudication withheld".
