    Hey guys I was wondering if there is a way to recalibrate the speedometer after I get my lift and tires on the truck. I tried to search it here and nothing came up. Is there something out there to get this done?

    What size tires? The lift will have nothing to do with the speedo. The YAW sensor might not be happy if you go to tall.

    I’ll end up going with 285/75/16.

    Honestly the difference isn’t noticeable enough to worry about it or to justify the cost. Your speedo with 285/75 will be a few MPH slower than your actual speed at 40 mph just do the speed limit and you’ll be fine. Even at 75mph on speedo you’ll be doing 80mph actual speed. You’ll just get there a little quicker. If you had 35” or 40” tires there would be a noticeable difference. Over 10mph at 70.

    So to make sure I’m right, with that size of tires I’m going faster then what the speedometer says? Correct?

    Yes the speedo will say 60mph and you will be doing around 64mph
