Speedometer + (>Tires) != (MPH)

This might be a stupid question, but when I got the new tires installed on my truck (295/70R18) they told my my speedo was going to be off and to get the hyper-tech calibration tool. This also means that it is effecting the amount of miles going onto the computer as well, right? Will that also effect my MPG reading on the dash since the truck thinks that it's putting on less miles per gallon of gas that it is burning?

You can always hand calculate the mileage and compensate for the larger tires!

Negative... since my speedo and mileage is off it's putting on less miles and I still can't even calculate it by hand. Mileage comes out worse than it should.

I think he also mentioned compensate for larger tires. It is simple math, and I bet your aren't as far off as you think.

Might as well have a moderator kill this thread as it is pretty much useless now.

Thicker skin and a sense of humor goes a long way on internet forums, otherwise people just assume you are a Pro owner. In any case, I will clean up your thread.

Thank you for cleaning it up. I do have a sense of humor. However, I had a question that was answered, then my thread got hijacked with tons of notifications blowing up my phone and computer for a thread that should have been dead over hotdogs... that's not really funny just a bit aggravating.
