Tires Gear RPM MPH KPH

MPH = RPM * WHEEL DIAMETER) / (GEAR RATIO * 336)

RPM = (MPH * GEAR RATIO * 336) / WHEEL DIAMETER

WHEEL DIAMETER = (MPH * GEAR RATIO * 336) / RPM

GEAR RATIO = (RPM * WHEEL DIAMETER) / (MPH * 336)

KPH = MPH * 160.93

MPH = KPH / 0.6214

Changing wheel diameter

ACTUAL SPEED = (NEW TIRE DIAMETER * INDICATED SPEED) / OLD TIRE DIAMETER)

Example: You changed from 24 inch tires to 27 inch tires. What is the actual speed when the speedometer indicates 30 MPH

(27 * 30) / 24 = 33.75 MPH
