After mounting my new Sunny 195/55/16 on my 2010 Wing my speedo is off a bit. Not much- about 1 MPH. If the speedometer shows 60 MPH for example, my GPS says that I am really going 59. It was right on the money at all speeds with the factory Dunlop MC tire that came on the bike. OK, I can live with 1 MPH I suppose, but seeing as that my new Wing was my first bike ever with an accurate speedometer, I kinda hate it for it to be off now, even by a little bit. Oh well.

LOL That's what you get for listening to Rocketman when picking a tire LMAO just joking. I have run a Falken,a Toyo, and now a Yokohama on my 2010 the Falken and Toyo kept speedo spot on but the Yokohama is off that 1 mph you talk of but to me I could care less. And i am kinda really likeing this Yoko . Oh well good luck with the new Sunny it will be just fine LOL :thumbup:

Unfortunately there isn't a car tire with the same diameter of the stock tire. At least that I know of. In my case on the 08 with the factory error, a 195/60 corrected the error.

Hey Rusty, I can give you a good deal on a General G-Max. Your speedo should read 60, and your GPS 62 with it!

Nah, no thanks Rocketman. Hey- it was your fault that I even bought this Sunny tire! And you know what? It aint even sunny at all! It's just as dark as all my other tires have been. What's going on here???

Before I went to the Darkside, my '02's speedo was off by about 4% when compared to the Garmin. Since the DS change it's closer to 2.5%.

Close enough for me, though it sounds like you're even closer.

Enjoy the ride!
