Speedometer Recalibration

If i am currently running stock 30" tires and get bigger tires, say 32" or 33" will I need to recalibrate the speedometer or is the percentage change too small to really need recalibration?

yes and no...

you need to change the speedometer gear, not recalibrate the speedometer...it's a 5 minute job and will cost you $12-$20 depending on the gear...

it will be a small percentage off...but it's still off...and you might not worry about the speedometer, but it also effects the odometer, and that's a major legal issue...

here's the write-up:

It will fix your problem. I just changed mine recently and it was pretty easy.

Since i got 33's I was not racking up miles on my odeometer accurately and I figured i was off by about 11% on my speeodometer.

Where can i pick one up, do you think they would have them at autozone or something like that? I'll check the 4 wheel parts near me but i didn't see them carrying it online.

Dealership is as good a place as any on those things...

This is how you determine part number you need:
