You have to measure the wheels outer circumference, in mm's, then enter that number into the speedometer.

1. Place a strip of tape on the ground, draw a line on it.

2. Place the wheel over the line, align the wheels inner-tube valve with that line.

3. Roll the wheel one complete revolution, mark that spot under the inner-tube valve onto another strip of tape, and measure the distance between those two lines on each strip of tape.

How much will the speedometer change if you go from a 15 inch rim to a 14 inch rim?

It wont. They will only change when you increase/decrease the size dramatically as the wheel or tire. A one inch change wont make a difference.A more accurate answerIt's true that the size of the rim does not directly have any impact on the speedometer accuracy. But changing the rim size generally means that you'll be changing the size of the tire. The speedometer is directly affected by the circumference of the tire that is used. If you use a tire with a 10% larger circumference, the speedometer will indicate that you're going 10% slower than you really are. If you match the circumference of the 14 inch tire to the circumference of the 15 inch tire, the speedometer accuracy will not change.

How does replacing 15 inch wheels with 16 inch wheels affect speedometer reading?

The speedometer reading differences should be negligible if you spec the tyres according to the manufacturer's manual because the tyre profile for a 15" wheel would have been fatter than that of 16" for the same car. The meter is calibrated to the inflated tyre mounted on the wheel and the reading is a close approximate of the actual speed only.
