ScanGauge _Changing tire sizes?

Is it possible to calibrate the scangauge for different size tires.I'm assuming scangauge uses the tire size programed into the pcm. Am i correct, thinking about getting one.

There sure is....there is a specific function to accommodate larger tires to result in correct speeds, etc.. One way is to tell us what tires you use and someone should be able to tell you the percentage function to input into the Scangauge to correct for that size of tires. Otherwise, use a GPS to make an estimate and then fine-tune it.

Yes, you can make the correction on the scangauge. But, your dash speedometer will still be off. You will need a programmer to change that.
