hey guys, i went to that site and did it for my tires and it said that my new tires is 0.4% too fast compared to the stock tires,i have a au police cluster , so does anyone know how much do i adjust for it?
thanks


None, 0.4% is nothing. At 100 kilometres an hour, your dash would be reading 100.4kilometres an hour.most car manufacturers will only guarantee their gauges to within 10%, but in theory they are much more accurate than that.

it IS a percentage out, so if its 5km out at 100km/h, its 2.5% out at 50km/h

If what your saying,. that a fixed 10km/h throughout the whole speed range, So at 1km/h, im actually doing 11km/H? its more like 1.05km/h
