Mathematics never lie - thanks Absolut!

If you're lazy, hear this:
I have the 6s with 17's and had a police officer I know check my indicated vs actual speed with laser. He pointed the laser gun at my car with less than 5 degrees of angle (even that can make a difference I guess) and helped me check 40mph and 60mph. They were exacly on. Since Im pretty sure all Mazda 6 speedo's have the exact same components, this would lead me to believe that tire size would have an impact on accuracy.

My 6 is off by 2-3 miles per hour (verified by the stupid "YOUR SPEED" radar thingie saying I'm going "00" when it was 102). hehe... its always fun to have it read 00... highest I have gotten it to read it 13.. hehe

for those that are going to say not true... these signs have room for only two digits so the 1 of 100 and 113 would just not be displayed.
