Adjusting Speedometer for Shorter Wheels/Tires?

For anyone who's stepped from the factory 20's down to something smaller/shorter, did you have your speedometer recalibrated? And if so, how did you do it/have it done?

Hey guys. I decided to downsize the wheel setup on my 2015 1LE. Apex has had a sale going for the past month, so I broke down and picked up a set of Camaro-specific ARC-8's (19x10/11).

To preserve...

For a 'budget' performance tire, the Indy 500's seem hard to beat. The last time I looked at tires, they were really appealing. It sounds like they punch pretty hard above their price point.

I just noticed you're in Florida.

You have plenty of long highways, a 75mph speed limit, and a limited number of road courses & curvy backroads.

The answer depends on the wheels. Running a 285 on an 8 inch rim doesn't sit well with me. It'll fit on a 9 inch rim, but it's not exactly ideal. If your talking about a 10 inch rim, do it! You could...

They'll poke in the rear, but not as much as you think. They should stick out about 4.3mm more than the stock 20x11 ET40's. Maybe noticeable to you, but no one else.
