if you changed the size of the tires, that is the most common issue. it can be calibrated by a speedometer repair shop. Roy

the tires are 17's rather than 16's that are standard . would that cause the speedometer to read lower than actual speed ? thanks again

yes it would the roll speed is slower with bigger tires. Roy
