Spedo adjustent after larger tire install?

Have any of you guys had the speedometer adjusted to compensate for installing larger tires? If so how? Who did it? How much did it cost? Can you do it yourself?

So much for that idea. I had it set up with the dealer. When wife went in today the dealer said they couldn't do it. Must have been some lawyer who intervened. sigh.......

Yeah I know you are kind of stuck, plus they never were really too good except selling " new " Jeeps
I drove through the dealership about a year ago and one of the salesmen stopped me to see if I was ready to trade in my Land Rover on a Jeep........
yep actual question.......: laugh:

I down loaded an app for my iPhone that measures MPH as you drive. I tested it on my 2013 F150, it was bang on. I was impressed. So I tried it with the Liberty, only 2 MPH off. It was pretty consistent across all speed ranges, if anything it was a little less than 2 MPH at slower speeds. 2 MPH at 70. Not worth anymore effort.
