A take it a tune is the only way to correct the speedo?
ofcourse man. Thats why its a wheel/tire calculator. It will never be wrong. It will tell you correct answer no matter what brand, size, width tire/wheel you have.My 275-35-20's on my Camaro wheels make it about 2 mph slow at 65 by running side by side with my dad (I wanted to test this when I got them). Zep's info appears spot-on.
I'll bite...why? I'm guessing because the TPMS system maybe measures the RPM of the sensor and gets MPH from that??? That's the only thing I can think of....really not being a jerk, just interested in the thought processWouldn't replacing the tire pressure sensor when getting the 20" Camaro rims correct the problem?
No, the sensors just "sense" pressure, and relay that info to your car. You could build a pressure chamber out of 6" PVC pipe, put all 4 sensors inside, seal it up, and pressurize it to 35psi, put it in your trunk, and everything would be good.I'll bite...why?

Overall diameter changes from 26.7" to 27.6" on that size rear tire. Speed difference SHOULD calculate out to 3.3%, or 62MPH at 60MPH actual.With 245/35's up front and 275/35's on the rear, and according to my iphone speedometer, I have found it to be only about 2 mph faster @ 75 mph!
No, they won't. Smallest you can go is a 17" wheel.Nice calclulators! So I could actually run a 225.60.16 tire for winter tires. This would be a little cheaper than buying 18's and maybe open the door to using steel wheels. The only question that just came to mind is will 16" wheels clear the brakes?
