This spreadsheet based calculator allows you to calculate overdrive ratios, view various difference between two tire sizes, calculate your RPM given a speed, calculate your speed given an RPM and find out how much your speedo would be off if you changed tire sizes.
I have inputed MGB specs based off the factory repair manual, however, there are differences throughout the years. I also put in a modern tire size equivalent that is commonly used.
That being said, any of the yellow highlighted fields can be changed manually if desired. Because of this, you can use it for any type of vehicle, hence why there are 5th and 6th gear input fields.

whatever the transmission tells it. So assuming you have the correct
speedometer and it is reading accurately, you should see the resulting
numbers as calculated in the spreadsheet.
