Dude I have no idea what you just said. You really need to work on your grammar skills if you want people to understand and help you.

It all depends on why you need to do the change.

If you are going racing a whole lot you will want the low 3.55 ratio. If your just looking for more zip on the street and don't care about miles per gallon get the 3.73's. Either set will cause easy wheel spin if you give it a lot of gas on take off without some good sticky tires on the back.

If you are not auuto-Xing or drag racing or just plain any type of racing I would just leave the gears alone and get a good set of mufflers, a good Cold air intake and if that's not enough get a Bama tune. You will get excellent street performance and still get good MPG for a lot less $$$$$$ then gears and tires.

I've got 3.73's and about 450hp on stock 255/35/19 Pirelli Pzero Nero's. If you're worried about having too much spin, it's all in the clutch work.

You've got a V6 so I wouldn't worry about your gas mileage too much. And if you got an auto, you just have to find the sweet spot of the pedal to accelerate without spinning.

3.73 and don't look back. 3.55s are the best if you are going Turbo, but if you aren't 3.73s.

Now looking at American Muscle and your mentioned tire I see that your using an All Season Tire for and you currently have 3:73 gears. The factory stock 17 inch tires that come on the V6 models are also an All Season Tire, Michelin. Since both tires are an All Season radial is your tire stickier when it comes to traction? Traction purposes does your tire provide a better level of less tire spin than the Michelin All season Tires?

Are the stock 17's 7" wide or 7.5"? Sorry I have no clue. Lol

I would think that the all season tire would roughly have similar traction rating. You could upgrade for something stickier.

Well I was thinking on the lines of the similar thought. If both tires are a all season tire and give a very similar traction. If people
are running 3:73 gears on a 390 torque 5.0 on factory all season tires and people are not having major traction issues, then a v6 with 280 torque shouldn't have spinning issues on 3:73 gears either. OP, get the 3:73 gears. Mine are going in tomorrow.
