problem with accupro =

Tire Sizes = 24in. - 34in.

BLEH... i have 37's plus i spent less on the box I use

Speed Wizard, kind of like a tru speeed but less expensive, smaller, and can be calibrated while parked (shows a user interface through the speedometer)

That does not look accurate at all to me (sorry just being a little sarcastic)

here is mine:

50 on GPS = 50 on speedo

75 on gps = 75 on speedo

100 on gps = 100 on speedo

And every number in between works fine too... but I did not want to type them all.

I use the Speed Wizard

Better yet, spend the $175 on a good GPS and ignore the speedometer. That's what I do and my tires and wheels are stock.
