Hey raul,

I know an electrical engineer that knows EVERYTHING about this,....

His name is Kenny... and he actually invented his own speed correction device, and it is WAYYYY better than the Truespeed and all the others....cheaper too.

I know him pretty well, and I'm positive he will still be happy to help you.

In fact he just told me, for you to contact him, his product ties into the same place the True Speed does... go to his website and follow the directions...just scroll down to the manual...

Too bad I didn't know earlier,..I could have told you there was a better option for speed/tire size correction out there.

You need the aspect ratio number too. 265 is the width of the tire.

Sorry I did not pop in earlier...

Glad that info on that site helped you out... a 265/75R16 tire is approx a 31.7" tire.

Do not forget to account for tire squat - the manual on that site goes over that.

raul, I have been trying to contact you(tried a few different email addresses I figured yours might be), but if you need help with the tru speed, or anything

give me a shout>

merc45@gmail.com

I suggest checking your final correction with a GPS, and if you use the truspeed set the "2nd" setting the same as the first setting incase you accidentally flip that switch

just a thought
