    Maybe that particular tuner, but I know for a fact any tuner locally can do it. Hell, even the hypertech has programmable tire sizes.

    ^exactly... all fixed via PCM...

    don't ever go to who ever told you that you can't do that for any kind of fix... they clearly don't specialize and have knowlege in obdII controlled cars...

    it mainly depends on total tire diameter regardless of wheel diameter. if you get tires that are the same factory diameter, then no change is needed.


    here's a chart. the ones highlighted are original tire height equivalents.
