If I increase the OD of my tires, ie. the 14" w/ 195/60 have an outside diameter of 18.6 and change inches, to 16" w/ 205/40 which have a total outside diameter of 19.2 and change inches, will my speedometer read slow or fast ? How difficult is it to re-calibrate the speedo to match..
Thanks

Re: New tires w/ Speedo calibration (Tarmac)

thanks for the link !
I guess since it'll only be off by 3.3% (100kph reads 98.2kph) it's not worth it at all..
thanks tarmac !
