Speedo Gear Selection
# of output shaft drive teeth
Axle ratio (i.e. 3.55)
Tire size (i.e. 225/60R16)

So you're dramatically changing your tire size? Swapping in a different gearset? This is more than likely going to throw off your speedometer. Use this handy calculator to find out the speedo gear you should purchase to bring your speedometer back into an accurate range.
Step 1: Determine your tire diameter.
You probably won't know this off the top of your head, as it is less used than the common tire size designation which is Width/Sidewall Ratio/Wheel Diameter. Here is a calculator that will help you figure out the tire diameter.
Please note this calculator is modified to include an approximate tire deflection/squish in its calculation. The most accurate way to get your tire diameter is to contact the tire manufacturer and ask for Static Loaded Radius--you will have to supply a PSI value and vehicle weight at the wheel. Overall Diameter will give you a false reading!
Step 2: Determine the number of teeth your speedo gear should have.
Enter the value from Step 1, and the other relevant information, into the calculator below to produce the # of teeth your speedo gear needs to send the correct signal to the speedometer. Applications where the value is less than 15.5 or greater than 23.5 should consider an electronic ratio adapter available by CashandPlay's Warehouse to maintain speedo accuracy (check with Speedo Gears BUY NOW Details Page for SPEED CALIBRATORS).
