Red face Calibration Help

Hello all,

I swapped my tires and TPMS sensors from 16" stock to Sahara 18"s. Now I was told that I need to recalibrate my speedo and Odometer along with shift points for the new rotation of the tires. I want to make sure I get an accurate MPG and Speedometer reading. Right now it's off by about 6 MPH. I know there are the Superchip and Procal but I'm not in a position to buy those right now. I'm going to call the dealer tomorrow and see if they'll do it for me since my Jeep is just 1 week old and under warranty. Also wondering if any other 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport owners in the East LA/Montebello area might have the calibrator and can help me out for maybe less than what the dealer will charge or the cost of the tool. I also do leatherwork and maybe can work a trade for some help.

Thank you for your consideration in advance,


Spiderflesh George

All those 'calibrators' are VIN locked, meaning you cannot use em on more than one vehicle at a time, so you won't be able to borrow it from anybody. Also it doesn't really matter the size of the wheel you got/had, you need to calibrate the if your tire size changed. Your best bet is buying an AEV Procal or Superchips flashcal, they cost around $159 new. This option is better than going to the dealers because if you want to get larger/smaller tires later on you won't have to go to the dealer again, will be able to do all the calibrations yourself.

Awesome then. Thank you for the reply. Time to start slanging more leather to buy a new toy. Not that it's a bad thing.

Damn, $120 is a lot for a one time calibration.

That sucks. Like said your better off getting the flash cal or procal. I use the flash cal and it is great. An added bonus is you can upgrade it to the flash paq should you want to.

Nice. I think that's the route I'll go. Found them on Amazon for $142.00 for the 3570. I wonder if local shops would price match. I'd rather give my money locally being a local artist myself.
