The BFG spec sheets (PDFs available on their web site) give revs per 
mile @ 45MPH.  Not exactly the same data, but it should be sufficient 
to answer the ever popular "what size keeps my speedo accurate?" 
question, especially since that's how the speedo is calibrated anyway.  
That's what I used to pick the suggested sizes on my web page, and that 
explanation and a link to the BFG site is there as well.  For a wheel 
size bigger than 15", try a 205/55-16 or a 225/50-16 @ 836 revs/mile.
