You should have done your research.
I was considering 4.10 gears because my tires are 305/35/20 at 28.43 inches tall. This is fuking tall with top speeds of 52-53mph in 1st and 78-79mph in second with my 3.31 gears.
With 4.10 gears and 7500rpm I'd cross the line at 118/119mph which is maximizing the bandwidth power.
But 4.10 would be overkill if I went with like a 285/30/20 tire at 26.73 inches or shorter because I'd have to shift into 5th lol.
So I was advised that 3.73 is better because with best overall cuz with:
305/35/20 - 4th top speed is 130mph
285/30/20 - 4th top speed is 123mph
This is the most versatile gear for street and track and allows me to go smaller on tires without making my car too short on gears.
Grabber what do you think? 3.73 for my setup? I'm thinking I'm sticking with at least 305/35/20 from now on until I widen my rims if I want meatier tires.
