Just out of curiosity with so many new vehicles having computer control and digital dashes, if the odometer is mis calibrated wouldn't the speedometer be off also? Wouldn't it use the distance traveled to calculate speed?

If the ECU can be adjusted for tire size, could you "trick" the odometer by adjusting the tire size to compensate for the delta?
