Can anyone tell me why the computer setting is different for different widths of tires. I understand how the diameter affects mileage, speed etc. but what is the difference, for instance between a 700C X 35 and a 700C X 25, with reference to how the computer reads speed, or miles?

The larger the width, the higher the sidewall.
Result a change in actual diameter.!
