Your tires are much bigger you are traveling further than your odometer is reading and your speedometer is also slower than what you are actually going.i havent regeared....but yea i really dont understand the logic behind the bigger tires vs the odometer readings...are the readings higher or lower than the true mileage??...then another thing..is my speedometer reading lower or higher than what my real speed is?
Did you add the tires or was it done before you, it could have been regeared. But you have it backwards, when your speedometer says you are going 60 you are really going 74, that could be right. When your speedometer says 48 you are really going 60.so i went to that site and punched in the info....it said the speedometer difference is 23% too low and the diameter difference is 19%...so if i had stock tires going 60 mph, with the 35s it would read 48 mph...i realize its a drastic tire size increase but i doubt it has that much effect...when im goin 60mph and keeping up with the speed limit and traffic..im really only goin 50mph??..it doesnt sound right
anybody else have a v6 1997 (or similar year) tacoma with 35x12.50 tires??..my mpg is around 13...i was wondering what anyone else's mpgs were like with similar tires..any input is appreciated...i need better mpgs!!!
yea worthy ur right bout mph.....if my speedometer reads 48 im really going 60 i get it now but it still seems high....but i had the lifts done and it wasn't regeared..the original tire size for my truck was 225/75R15...the new tires dwarf the old ones...and btw kevin, get rid of the lift and tires = not an option....id keep my set-up if i only got 8 mpgs
Just use a GPS to check your speed. :facepalm:Did you add the tires or was it done before you, it could have been regeared. But you have it backwards, when your speedometer says you are going 60 you are really going 74, that could be right. When your speedometer says 48 you are really going 60.
There is always the old drive 10 miles down the road and see how your odometer compares with the mileage markers.
