Re: Gear ratio and tire size
It can also effected the transmission, I assume its an auto, if you run that tire size and a high(er) gearing you put excess wear on the transmission, because you will be down shifting every incline you hit, I have seen it cause transmission failure in as little as 50,000 miles, just my 2 cents
however if it is a manual, then it is your chose based on your driving.
