Jeffro is more helpful than most

Thing to remember too, is that technically speaking, a radar gun is only as accurate as its programming... So when your car is off 2 mph at 65, their radar gun could be off the same amount, or 2 the other way. That's what makes an argument in court if you really weren't speeding much, and why they aren't supposed to pull you over for less than 5 over, FYI...

Re: Speedometer calculator for aftermarket wheels/tires

And this one is even better

http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCal...mp;vehicle=yes

Looks up stock diameter and wheel size based on make, model, and trim, and then you can compare 4 different tire sizes at once and tells you the percentage difference in diameter and what your speedo would say when you were going a true 60 mph.
