Many speedos are 5% out in the first place, so it could have got better or worse, check the actual speed on a GPS unit as you drive to know for sure

Whining noise as jeep 4x4 increases speed been told it was tyres, replaced them but noise still there??


Wheel bearings run at the same speed as the tires and are sometimes mistaken for a tire noise. Have them checked as well.

Do oversized tires alter the speedometer. The speedometer stated i was going 65 and the state police clocked me at 79 mph.


Most certainly does
You need a different gear in the trans or transfer case,that drives the speedo
Now if the speed sensor is the output,then you will need help. I personally do not know, if a scan tool can reprogram the ecm/bcm etc, to correct for the tire change.

Ask that question next.

When you replaced the ABS sensor on the hub, did you clean and re-gap the sensor to the speed ring on the hub. There was a recall on the ABS Malfunction on your truck. The tire size don't make a difference to your ABS as long as all four tires are the size, There was a issue bulletin with your Tahoe on the ABS activating under 8 km/h. Good luck and hope this helps, if not clean out the sensor with brake parts cleaner and check the wire harness and ABS sensor bracket. Re gap the sensor to the speed ring hub. Here is the bulletin.

Tires and rims


Check inside the driver door post for the factory tire size for your truck. It's recommended that your tire size not vary more than 3% of original, due to handling characteristics, and car/truck performance. Keep in mind that putting huge tires on can throw off your speedometer reading, so big tires having fewer revolutions will show a lower speed than you are actually traveling-so watch out for radar traps! Our computer controlled engines are fed info constantly to adjust fuel/air ratio, rpms, etc, and vastly different tire sizes can affect those adjustments and calculations. So, yes, I agree, bigger tires would look much better, but don't go too big. For a formula to estimate tire size and lots of info and advice, go to tirerack website.

You most likely have a wheel speed sensor dropping out this would make abs system think one wheel is locking up and therefore activate. this usually will happen rt before you stop at around 5mph or so.Also if you have bigger tires than factory and have not had abs programmed for this size it can aggravate it

Can I use bigger diameter wheel in truck cheyenne?


The key to all of this is that by changing the rolling circumference of your tire, you are also changing the amount of leverage that must be exerted to get the vehicle rolling, and to maintain speed uphill. This translates to additional stress on driveline components and can also have a negative effect on fuel mileage. On flat ground, it can add to fuel milage by acting as an 'always-on" overdrive. Generally it's not good to mess with larger than stock setups unless you have a specific goal in mind that is not strictly "cosmetic"!
