Asked by Aug 29, 2014 at 12:23 AM about the 1989 Chevrolet Camaro RS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Camaro Speedo and Tach both are reading significantly higher than the actual speed.. (IE: at 65 mph I am actually going around 50-52mp)

I have the normal sized wheels and tires on the car - 205/65/r15

No clue why it would be doing this.. any ideas?
