Recalibrate Speedomter

I put new tires on. They are a little smaller than what was on my truck originally. How can I recalibrate the speedometer?

Thank in advance!

Thanks! ...I'll check out your link.

I have no idea what stock tires were when the truck was made 17 years ago. All I know is that the truck had 285's and the speedometer was accurate when compared to my GPS.
