Re: [DML] Speedometer bouncing



You may want to also validate that you have the correct tire size on 
your front tires. Since your speed is based on how many times the 
Driver's side wheel turns, if you have smaller times, your speedo 
can read that you are going faster than you really are... the 
converse also holds true. If your tires are too tall/large, your 
speedo will register a slower speed. 

Often times (like when you are driving west out of San Diego 
California on the I-8 (or is it the five - The freeway number is not 
all that important) on your way to El Centro, they have a way to 
check if your speedo is off based on the milage markers.

Either that or you can drive by those signs at the airport that 
measure your speed without giving a photo-radar ticket, but just 
display your speed to find out how much you are off.

I know that my speedo is about 2 or 3 mph, according to that sign. 
My speedo was on the 30 mph line, and the sign read 33.
