Combination of both. That tall 55 series tire is turning marginally slower than a 50 series, giving you a low reading.

I rode through those police radars on the side of the road, it said 38mph I looked down and read 41mph on the gauges. About 5k miles on the tires and everything else stock. At least its higher than said speed rather than lower. :idunno:
