    Assuming this isn't a troll,

    There is nothing weird about different tire sizes causing different readings on your speedometer. The dealership should be able to reprogram.

    wat?
    going to a larger size would make the speedo read slower, not faster. my truck was stock w/ 265/65/17, running 285/75/16 and my speedo reads 3 mph slow at 70. 70 on speedo= 67 IRL. dealer also cannot recalibrate the speedo.

    Good to know. Ford was able to recalibrate the speedometer on my old F-150. I figured the same could be done with the Taco.

    He's height was changed by about an inch; circumference by about 4" which is the factor for the speedo change.

    Radius on 245/70/16= 14.8"
    Radius on 265/70/16=15.3"

    von0777,

    I suggest you look at the sticker inside your drivers door for the size tire your truck was originally equpped with. On my truck, 245X75R-16 was the standard, 265X70R-16 being an optional tire size. These two tires share a near identical height.

    My thinking is that your 265X70R-16 tires are giving you the correct reading and your old tires were giving you a false reading.
