This calculator will get you back to a
ratio that's closer to your original. Enter the values on the left and press
Ever wonder how far off your
speedometer is with your new bigger tires? This uses a simple ratio calculation, so the
info will only approximate your corrected speed and depends on the accuracy of tire size
diameters (assuming nothing but tire size has changed).
Ever wonder what your low-low-low
gear ratio is, your "crawl ratio"? You'll need to do a little research by
finding out the transfer case and transmission ratios first. Enter your values on the left
side, press Compute and your answer will be on the right.
I've spend a bunch of time trying to WAG (wild ass guess) my actual MPH when going down the road. By knowing your gear ratios and tire size you'll get a more accurate idea here. Enter the value on the left, press Compute.
I suppose if you don't have a
tachometer you could use this form, otherwise it's only useful to find out how accurate
your Tach is. Enter the values on the left, press Compute.
This formula is a nice way to get the tire diameter of those metric tires that are common on just about everything stock. For example a 265/75R16 would be around 31.6 inches tall. Enter the numbers into this form in the order you read them from the tire and press Compute.
