215 tires mess up speedometer?
I just bought my jeep about a month ago and the guy just recently installed some 215/70r16's on my jeep. When im on the highway and going 120kph i usually pass all the cars infront of me with my girlfirends accord. But with this jeep im going 120 and everyone is passing me. Just wondering if smaller tires like that can throw of the speedometer and make it seem like im going faster when im not. Also can having smaller tires than recommended in the manual hurt anything on my jeep? Thanks
yea thats what i was implying when i said everyone was passing me in my jeep. This guy wasnt the kind of guy to change the speedo gear( im guessing that means rear gear ratio?) Can having smaller tires hurt anything mechanically?
just a quick question, im doing some minor front end work ( end links, sway bar bushings, shocks) this weekend and i was wondering if i need lube up those bushings with grease before i install them?
I just got done spraying some rust loostener for the bolts on my end links and shocks, and i was looking at the top of the stock shock and there doesnt seem to be a bolt or anything to unscrew up top....is it hiddin up underneath the fender liner?? or do you have to undew the bolt by opening hood and coming from the top through the engine?
