I'm driving 60mph on freeway..speedometer is saying 95mph(I wish). What is the problem? The speedo cable or the actual speedometer?.

Need more details.

If it had (way) bigger tires, and had the speedo recalibrated for it, then putting normal size tires on it again will do that...although, that seems like pretty drastic numbers.

Have you been back behind the instrument cluster at all lately? The speedometers are adjustable in the back of them

WHAT? Adjustable?? I was there saturday and it all looked good. I added some oil drops into the speedometer holes. I also noticed that the cable had a zip tie holding the air tube and the cable together so I removed it. I then took it for a spin and NOTHING same old 30mph when I'm only doing 20mph. Can you tell me how to adjust it? I'm currently using the GPS as my Speedometer.

Sorry about that I wasn't on this site but yes pretty much all speedo's are adjustable electronically or digitally. Perfect article that rhinoman put up.

It is important to know that the adjustment described at Zuksoffroad is mechanical and only affects the speedometer readout. The adjustment is there specifically for situations where, for some internal-to-the-dash-panel mechanical reason, your speedometer becomes uncalibrated. this would include mishandling or bumping the unit while it is out of the dashboard.

If you make this adjustment to correct your speed on a vehicle with non-stock gearing or tire sizes, the Odometer readings - which are ONLY affected by changes in the drivetrain gearing/tire size - will NOT be correct!

To paraphrase a common advertising statement:

YOUR MILEAGE WILL VARY!

I hope that this helps!
