Speedometer off due to tire size change and need to reset.

I purchased new tires but all they had were P235 65 R16 and I needed P235 70 R16. Now my speedometer is off and I was wondering if there was a way to reset it.

I dont think there is a way to reset the speedometer except installing the proper size for your particular vehicle. I made the same mistake one time . I installed larger tires deliberately ti make the car higher. It didn't work. it was rubbing against the metal when I hit a bump in the road. I had to install the proper recommended tires.

Recommended tire size is 2352/70/R15 can I change sizes?


I don't believe there would be a problem due to fit but this is difference in measurements.
The 75 diameter (across tire) is 28.88 in.
The 70 diameter is 27.95 in
The 75 width of tire is 9.25
The 70 width is also 9.25
The 75 circumference 90.72
The 70 circumference 87.82
The 75 sidewall height 6.94
The 70 sidewall height 6.48
The 75 revolution per mile 698
The 70 revolution per mile 721
The 75 speed at 50 and the 70 is 48.4
I can't see why it would not work.

Tire and Rim Problem


It appears that you have the wrong size wheels on the rear (17). Standard tire size on that vehicle is 265/75/16. You all so have a full size spare. Keep in mind that if this is a 4 wheel drive vehicle, damage to the drivetrain can result if you continue to drive with diffrent size tires.

Snow tire size for 2004 Honda Odyssey?


Not a good idea at all! The speedo will be out, but that's the least of your worries. It will become harder to accelerate and will make the transmission and engine work harder. You will have reduced braking efficiency and more rapid wear as the brake system was not designed to deal with the higher mechanical advantage of a taller tire. The vehicle will not handle as well, besides having a taller sidewall and center of gravity, the suspensions scrub radius will change and it will make it feel twitchy to drive. Your gas mileage will suffer as the engine and trans were not designed around this tire diameter. The larger tire will have a higher rolling resistance and weigh more as well.
If anything, for a snow tire, you really need a skinnier tire rather than a bigger one. Skinny tires bite the snow and ice better. If it were me, I would be looking for a 215 65 16 Same ride hieght and slightly narrower tread.

1996 jeep grand cherokee ltd problem with transfer case because of different size tires


You should have the same size tires in the front and back. By having 2 different sizes, you are changing the gear ratios between the front diff. and rear diff. You could wipe out the t-case especially if it is full time 4wd.
