Tire Size Recomendation

I own a 1976 912e that came with 185HR14 tire... Many year later is sporting 195/70/14, but the speedo is showing 4+/- MPH difference that the actual speed... Any suggestions on what size would be closer to the original?

Why not just get the right size tire?

Are you saying the indicated speed on the speedo is 4mph above the actual speed? Sounds normal for a 911.

You can search at Tirerack and compare the overall tire height of your choice to the OE tires.
