The tire diameter comes out the same in each case (a 20 inch wheel plus 10.5 inch in sidewall is the same overall diameter as a 17 inch wheel plus 13.5 inch in sidewall which is the same overall diameter as a 18 inch wheel with 12.5 in sidewalls.). Depending on the tire, a 22 inch wheel could have a much smaller diameter than an 18 inch wheel.

Because all OEM wheels/tires have the same overall diameter, the star scan tool may not provide the tech with WK2 tire factor adjustments. Other chrysler vehicles have a wider variety of tire sizes but the tool only lets the dealer pick one of the optional sizes. Clever techs discovered some work arounds, but those may not work here.
Good to know!

Re: Speedometer Issue 20 inch Wheels

Thanks for all the info guys. I am going to see if the dealer can re-calibrate and will let you know what happens.

Regards,
Jared
