Speedometer/odometer recalibration

This has nothing to do with my Mustang, but this is the best
place to go when I need an answer...
Can the speedometer & odometer on any vehicle be "recalibrated"
when changing tire size, to accurately show speed & miles? And, if yes, how is this done?
I just ordered a new Sport Trac as my daily driver and I want
to put different size tires on the factory wheels when it comes in.
Thanks.

Sure can... The dealer would have to update the PCM with the new tire size.

Obviously any Ford product can be self-adjusted if you have a tuner for that vehicle. In your case, sounds like it would be easier (cheaper) to just have Ford do it.

you'd be suprised how much of a difference a tuner does on the F150's and the Superduties!

The dealer will charge you about 70 bucks just for hooking it up.
