where can i have my speedo adjusted to new rim and tires.
i tried the dealer nd they shut me down. everywhere else local to me said they dont or no longer do so. i know its only 2-3 miles difference but showing the fix will hopefully get me out of a ridiculous speeding ticket.

the 2-3 mph difference isnt really going to give you a ridiculous speeding ticket, unless you're already going 10-15 over, and at that point its kinda redundant.... just sayin. how much bigger are the rims?

When I had 37" tires on the FJ I just used my GPS as the speedo. I agree with Amped though, 2 to 3 mph shouldn't be too concerning. When I didn't have my GPS I just moved with the pace of traffic and never got pulled. If its a pressing concern still, ask in HFD or Scikotics since they're bigger forums with people who may have been able to get answers.

You're responsible for your vehicle speed,there's no getting around that. If you change rims\tires, there are calculators that'll tell you how much error the change will introduce into your speedometer reading. Either be responsible or expect a ticket -- it's that simple!
