PostSubject: Tire/gearing question   Fri Sep 18, 2009 6:01 pm

What size tires and what gears are you guys running?

Back when I ran in '06 I had 215/70s with 2.56 rear gears..... I was told to run the 215/70s wih 2.73 gears but the car came with 2.56s and I never upgraded.

A lot of guys seem to be running 75 series tires, is it just for the larger rollout, or so they have mor sidewall to roll over onto?

Thanks.

I was leaning towards running a 225/70 with 2.73s this time around and see how well it does. Hopefully my driving will be better this time around now that I have some experience and some setup knowledge. I'm not afraid of twisting the motor a little higher if I need to.

Wow, that's a little lower than I thought. I was figuring to be about 6500.

Sounds like a 225/70 with a 2.73 is the way I should go then, thanks guys.
