Programing a non stock tire size
 
I just put 245 75 R 16 on my 2009 Liberty and would like the speedometer and odometer to read correctly. This is size is about 3% bigger in circumference; the tire store did not have a programmer for Jeep and setup an appointment with the closest dealer. When the dealer went to reprogram it they said there where 10 different sizes that could be programmed and 245 75 R16 wasn't one of them nor were any of the available size close to its circumference. Anyone have suggestions or solutions?

Hypertech programmer should be able to solve it.

If the mechanic is worth a crap he'll be able to do it. My dealer did but the mechanic told me there was some math involved. When I regeared, the shop that did the work was able to program the speedo too.

Hypertech did not work for me. After I set the new tire size and programmed I got a CEL and my ABS/ESP lights came on

How off was it? I know I've read that if you make the tire size so exact on the Hypertech, it won't read right and to select the next available size.

I still have stock tires.

The tires are 30.05" and I selected 30" on the Hypertech

Have you tried calling them or contacting them on Facebook?

I also have 30.5" Tires and tried to reprogram with Hypertech and gave me same results as the person above. I had Traction and ABS lights on. Changed it back to stock.

I think the difference is 4-5% overall if you're going 100km/h, Speedo will show 104km/h. It's barely noticeable at lower speeds.

Time for 4.10's ;-) err uh I mean 4Wheel Parts can reset it, they did mine when they put in the gears.

Mind me asking for the list of what was needed for the install and the cost incurred?

Roughly $2800. Detroit Trutracs, 4.10 ring and pinion, master rebuild kits front and rear. The labor was about $350 per axle and is included in the price listed. This will bring a 32" tire very close to stock performance. I plan to put on 31" tires so I should have a little giddy up left over. The thing runs great now. Time for the next step, hypertech :-)

I just did the programming last night and my ESP light just stays on and also the light in the middle for the stability control.
