Default matching speedometer and wheel size

Can anyone tell me how I can recalibrate my speedometer based on non-stock tires I have? My speedometer has always indicated 4 mph faster than actual speed (based on gps indicated speed) since I put 285/50 tires on my stock 20" wheels. My local dodge dealer tells me they don't have the equipment to make that kind of adjustment.

also. My a/c system works great but...the two dash vents on the passenger side blow significantly less cooler air then the two drivers side vents. Which tells me its a plumbing problem. My dealer tells me it will take $1,000 worth of labor costs to pull the dash and investigate the problem. Has anyone experienced this kind of problem? Over the past year or so, whenever I turn the a/c system button on, I hear an "pop" sound beneath the car. I assumed that I some kind of valve opening. Now i'm assuming that sound has progressed to a sticking valve of some sort. Any suggestions or insight?

Actually, I see they do not make a designated speedometer calibrator only for your vehicle.

But their Max Energy Programmer kills two birds with a single stone.

If you have a programmer you can do it, but yoru dealer is blowing smoke up your ass unless they have no way to computer interface with yoru vehicle. Something tells me no one there knows HOW to do it. IF you find yourself in Wilmington NC for any reason in July, let me know I havea DRBIII & I'll do it.
