Default Going Up to 17's


I have searched the forum and have not found a answer.

Just bought a set of 17 inch SRT4 rims.

I am wondering if there is anything I need to do other then actually changing the wheels that I need to do, I'm going from 16's to 17's

Would my speedometer still be right?

I had 16 inch on my Limited Edition and then went to the GT's 17 inch wheels. I went with 205x50ZR17 tires and the speedometer is almost perfect.

You should be good as long at the overall diameter has not change then the MPH will be the same, which means you have a larger diameter rim and a lower series tire. Just a guess but your 15" are 55/60 series tires and your 17" 35/40 series
