Question type: Maintenance & Repair

235 & 255 -- which control the speedometer?

1 Answer

90,545

The wider tires should always go on the rear, better load carrying on a truck, the speedo is driven by the transmission on the tires but tire size will have a effect on the actual speed of the truck. You will have to do a speedometer check to see if it has any effect on actual speed compaired to what the speedometer is reading.
