Could be... I know at 60mph indicated, I am actually doing 60 (as 
measured by another car, and nothing more sophisticated than that!) 
meaning the tires are "about right" for that speedo gearing. Of course 
those speedos are calibrated to be most accurate in that range, not at 
the high ends.

Ill be the sacrifical lamb.. next time I see one of our fine highway 
patrolman, Ill go by him, check my speedo and read the ticket. See if 
they match.  Then the next message I post will be:
