Calibrate speed

Is there any way to calibrate your speed after you install new wheels and tires without a programmer. Or is that the only way

Re: Calibrate speed

Think he is asking how to calibrate the speedo. Without flashing which major tire dealers may know how to do it would take an adapter box on the speedometer line like this. Of course knowing where to put it often requires a service manual.

Re: Calibrate speed

how far off is your speedo you think> What size tires did you go to?
