How do you correct the speedometer when going to a different diameter tire? Is there an obd device? Thanks

If you stay close to the original size the dealer can update it. However you can figure it yourself if you use a tire size calculator. Just do a web search for "tire size calculator" and they usually will give a % +/- from the original size. Unless you go to some outrageous size you're probably going to be within 5 MPH of actual. With 225/75-16s on my 2008 my speedometer was showing about 4MPH slower than actual. That size is about as big as will fit on mine without a lift.

Your own experience and common sense should keep you pretty close to reality.

My Garmin shows my speed.
