    im thinking about new bigger tires but how much will this affect my speedometer? And is there anyway to fix the speedometer?

    From 265/65 17's to 33x12.5 17's

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    the speedo reads a tad fast from the factory with the stock tires, so with 33's it'll only be reading around 2mph slow. There are some chips/calibrators that you can use to fix it, but cant think of them at the moment.
