use package calc

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{pstricks,multido}
\usepackage{calc}
\newlength\varI

\begin{document}

\setlength\varI{174.2pt-6.5pt}

\begin{pspicture}(6,6)
\multido{\n=0.0+22.5}{16}{%
\uput{0.5\varI}[\n](4,4){\psdot[dotsize=0.2](0,0)}}
\end{pspicture}

\end{document}

happy new year and good luck in 2008 to all of you
