    Hi guys, a quick wheel question from someone with not a lot of experience in this area. I'm thinking of changing my embarrassing 195/65R15 wheels to a set of RS6's with 225/40R18's on them. I am aware that there will be a slight difference in the rolling circumferences and was wondering to what extent this will effect speedo readings???? I presume there a way to programme in the new tire size so as to keep the speed reading true???

    Thanks

    It stays the same, what you go up in size on the alloys you go down on the wall / profile of the tyre.

    if you put the 15's next to the 18's with the tyres fitted you will notice that they will be quite a bit bigger but it shouldn't affect the speedo by much. when i upgraded mine from 15" to 18" it knocked the speedo out by about 4mph

    I went from 15's to 18's to 19's and my speedo got more accurate compared to my sat nav.
