I'd like to hear what people say too...
I have 33's with 3:73 and man did I notice the loss of power when I went from stock to the taller tire! I don't notice it anymore, really but I just got used to it. I could only imagine if I had gone to 35's with that gearing. I drive a good combo of city/hwy - so I get good highway mileage and lower in town now. I'd like to go to 35's next time I need tires, but I know I would need to re-gear and get fender flares Silly WA laws.

How is it for you all out there with 4:10 and 35's? That probably isn't so bad, right?

Scott

4.10's would be ideal

If you already have 4:10's then I think they would probably be a good gear for 35's but I cant see spending the money to put 4;10's in over 3:73's. Just wouldnt be enough of an upgrade for the cost in my opinion. I would rather run the 3:73's for now and if I want to go to a 37" or bigger then I would see enough improvement for the lower gear.

I run 4.30's and love it!
I coudn't see spending the money on a gear change to only go to 4.10's, for that small amount of difference I would just deal with 3.73's. But I tow a toyhauler trailer and the extra power I get from the 4.30's is a big improvement.

stick with 3.73's... I wouldn't waste your money on a gear change for 35's. You may even be suprised with your mileage as well. I didn't really notice any change going to 35's, when I went to 37's I could tell... but 40's I could really tell...

I have 4.30's for my 40's and it is perfect. cruising down the highway in OD at 70 I am at 2k rpm's....
