Updating computer?

I really should know the answer to this, but I'm a slacker and don't. lol How do I update my tire size in the onboard computer so that my speedo is correct, my shifts are correct, etc?

It takes a professional level scan tool. Sometimes even a programmer. It's not something you can do without them, it.

You'll need a shop to do it.

That may be, couldn't tell ya.

It's gonna have to be a bidirectional scanner with the ability to talk to whichever module stores that info. Usually either the bcm or the abs module.
