How would you know if your tyre size is speedometer correct? That is to say, is the rolling diameter correct?
If the original tyre rating (found on the door sticker) is 195/65/R15, then its rolling diameter is 15 x 25.4mm plus 2 x 195mm x 65/100, which is 634.5mm.
If the current tyre rating (found on the tyres) is 225/45/R17, then its rolling diameter is 17 x 25.4mm plus 2 x 225mm x 45/100, which is 634.3mm.
The ratio of the latter over the former is 0.99968, meaning it is speedometer correct. Most importantly, it will not represent an increased load to the engine, other than any weight differences. Oversizing of tyres can affect performance, with top speed dropping by as much as 30 kph for 3 percent oversizing. Cruising is affected, and fuel consumption goes up.
The Surbo works on half throttle to generate a back air pressure wave for jetting and vortex formation, which results in max engine rpm with half throttle. If the engine is overloaded with tyres with excessive rolling diameter, half throttle activation of the Surbo is not possible. Therefore, if your tyres are oversized, you might make it speedometer correct first before Surbo installation. When choosing tyres, use our formula to calculate the rolling diameter.
It is ok to go lower than the recommended tyre size, such as to 98% especially when much larger and heavier wheels are used, provided comfort is not compromised. This is also useful if your car is worn and has lost some power, or it has the smallest engine in its range, or if you have some modifications that have taken away the low rpm power and fuel economy.

It's still best to take the tyre information from the sticker around your own car door if it is still there. This list will be expanded.
