      bigger tires will make your spedometer think you're going slower than you really are...

      That is a good question...
      I know for a fact that my speedo changed, but when I drive past the radar carts that show your speed, my speedo is right on the money. So was it off to begin with or do they come a little slow anyways???
      That is the question.
      Here is alink to check your ratio, from a 235/75 to a 31" it is a 7% change.

      Most stock speedos (for all cars) come from the factory reading a little off, usually 2-3 mph at 70. They always read fast, I guess to be on the safe side.

      My last two trucks were right on for speed and distance as measured by GPS.

      You bet your arse I am. And there is not "a" satelite, there is a constellation of 24.

      Further, I trust them to find my dive sites every day. Imagine trying to locate a 100 sq ft area in 110 feet of water 30 miles offshore with out the birds.

      I have position accuracy of less than 10 feet.

      Yes I trust them.....
