IF you changed the tire size the computer will have to be calibrated for that. I used to work at a Cummins shop and if the tire size was changed the computer has to know how many revolutions to be accurate, A cummins shop with the Insite software can calibrate that for you. SO you are going to have to find a shop that can check and calibrate that for you. I do not know if the correct mileage can be rolled back but it can be stopped from reading incorrectly....
