The NG900, 9-3, and 9-5 can be programmed with a TechII for three different tires sizes. Other than that, there is no provision for adjustment. The signal for the speedo comes from the ABS system directly to the MIU (Main Instrument Unit) and is convert in to a signal that the speedo displays. Good luck, Steve Crowe, ASE CMAT/L1, Saab Master Level Tech Frederick, MD
