Laughing  That's a good solution.... Laughing

So now you have the sat nav how far out is the speedo? All speedos are set up to read as much as 10% under anyway...

Mine had some low profile things on alloys when I had it, so I put it on "standard sized" 195R15 A/Ts on standard steel rims, I remember the diameter difference was about 3%. I then changed those tyres for 215R15 M/Ts, another 4.5% diameter increase. Result? The speedo now reads exactly the same as the sat nav, so it must have been 7.5% under on the original tyres Confused
