## What’s the difference between 265 and 285 tires?

The larger 285/70R17 tire in the photo above stands over an inch taller and is nearly an inch wider than the 265/70R17 size.

…

The width of the tread is also a half-inch wider.

Many late-model domestic trucks accept this difference in size..

## Do you need a lift for 35 inch tires?

Upgrading to 35-inch tires: If you plan on upgrading to a 35-inch tire, you will need a lift of at least 2.5 inches for proper clearance. At most you’ll need a 3.5 inch lift.

## Will bigger tires affect my transmission?

Increasing Tire Size Will Reduce Your Vehicle’s Effective Gear Ratio. The increased size causes the tires to rotate slower to cover the same amount of ground. … If you are running an automotive transmission this can cause some serious strain depending on the current gear ratio if you choose not to regear your system.

## Does bigger tires affect gas mileage?

For example, larger tires decrease your fuel economy because they are heavier, while smaller tires increase fuel efficiency. Bigger tires also have a higher rolling resistance than smaller tires which means they require more resistance and effort to get them rolling.

## Are 3.73 or 4.10 gears better?

Well-Known Member. 4.10s are going to accelerate faster and decelerate faster on lift. However the trade off is greater fuel consumption per mile driven and higher engine speed per given road speed. In basic terms the 4.10s will feel quicker and 3.73 will feel faster.

## How much lift do you need for 35 inch tires?

Re: How much lift to clear 35″ tires? You’ll need at least 5″ of lift, but depending wheel offset possibly more to clear 35’s without rubbing.

## Can I fit 35 inch tires?

To increase performance, your tire should be compatible with your rim size. 33-inch tires work well with rims that measure 15 or 16 inches in width, while 35-inch tires should only be used with rims that are at least 17-inches wide.

## Can I put 35 inch tires on my Silverado?

The simple and quick answer: yes, 35-inch tires will fit on a Silverado if you install some form of a lift kit.

## Are 4.10 gears good for highway?

Installing 4.10 gears improves the car’s performance on the track but with negligible effects to the highway driving. If your car is equipped with an overdrive, you may not even notice a difference in gas mileage with the new higher gearing.

## Do taller tires increase gear ratio?

When changing gears for taller tires, you are heading to a numerically higher gear ratio. The higher the gear ratio, the smaller the pinion gear.

## What gear ratio should I use for 37 inch tires?

Increasing the 4.10 axle ratio by 16 percent would dictate the need of a 4.75 axle ratio to match the 37-inch tires. The exact axle ratio you need probably won’t be available, so it’s okay to round up when selecting the right ring and pinion. In this case, a 4.88 axle ratio would be acceptable.

## Are 4.10 gears good for 35s?

I’ve got 4.10s with 35s, with the 4.0 and ax15. I can get up to about 80 on the highway, and can hold 70 just fine. I’ll be going to deeper gears sometime though, but for a DD, 4.10s are alright.

## What gear ratio is best for 33 inch tires?

So if our truck had 30-inch tires stock, and a 3.73:1 axle ratio, that calculation would tell us we need a 4.103:1 (which rounds off to the readily available 4.10:1) gear ratio to get us back to stock with 33-inch tires.

## Are 3.73 gears good for highway?

Well, if you plan on doing a lot of freeway driving, you don’t want to choose a gear that’s too low for your car because you’ll be going down the freeway at too high of an RPM. … Shorter gears (higher numbers) are much better suited for accelerating, such as 3.55, 3.73, 3.91’s, 4.11’s etc.

## Is 3.42 or 3.73 better?

The 3.42 is fine for towing smaller boats, plus you will get better gas mileage for everyday driving. If I were towing frequently on hilly roads, I might would go for the 3.73 for better gas mileage while towing, but the 3.42 should be fine with a 205.

## Is it better to have a higher or lower gear ratio?

The higher the number the better the car will accelerate, but at the expense of high speed cruising. Now for the confusing part of the story. A high numerical gear ratio is called a low gear or low rear end, and vice versa. Low gears give fast acceleration, high gears give better cruising.

## Are 3.73 gears good for 35 tires?

You will be fine. Just gonna lose mpg and slow your truck down. I have run 35s with 3.73s and no issues at all. In fact, my recent Plat had a 4-inch lift, heavy 34.5 inch Nitto Trails, and 3.55 gears, and ran great!

## How far off is my odometer with bigger tires?

Over the length of 1 mile, this adds up to 33.6 feet. After “actually” traveling 157 miles, the odometer will be “off” by 1 mile. It will read 158 miles. Smaller diameter tires will effect odometer reading more than larger tires.
