Can you swap a gear in a stock speedo to calibrate it for oversize tires?

Just curious.

I would imagine so. However, speedometer shops sell geared adapters that will fit between the back of your speedo and the cable. You can gear a ton of different gear ratios. If you do the math, you can figure the difference between your tire size and the original tire size and put the exact adapter in that you need.

In fact, you could probably find them online.
