do i need to recalibrate for tires?

i am installing 235 85 16's and i know my speedo will be off. i was considering a super chip for both the fuel eco tune and the tire calibration. i have heard some rumblings that my 03 4.7 wj does not need adjusting because of the method the system uses to calculate the speed. if that is the case i dont want to spend $350.00 for the fuel eco program only. pretty expensive for me to get this wrong. help!!!!!!!!!!!

Sidewall: 6.75 in
Radius: 14.75 in
Diameter: 29.50 in
Circumf: 92.69 in
Revs/mile: 683.57

thoose are 32" tires... 2inches taller than you are now so you might have a little rub at lock to lock.

Don't get the superchip. It wont' recalibrate the speedo. I bought one for that purpose and it didn't work, so I returned it. Not worth it.
