    Doing it legit in your garage, since this is not as simple as plugging numbers in, as diameter changes all the time.

    Dab of grease on centre tread, roll car til the grease hits twice, measure the distance between centre of the spots in inches. Convert a mile into inches, (63, 360)

    Divide 63360/your distance measure = RPM of your actual tire, as close as you'll get it.

    Cardinal I tried that but it's not matching up. The site says it should be 740 but my car stock has it at 756 revs per mile

    Just do it my way. It works and is as accurate as it can possibly be. The online calculators are at best a SWAG.
