Gear Ratio

I have a 1992 F150 4x4 with 302 5 speed and 3.55 gears and want 33" tires. How do you think this will do with these gears and those tires.

Thanks Guys. What gears would bring the truck back to stock driving conditions with the 33" tires.

Bigger tires can help you crawl up those slick rocks, look cool, and rob you of power. TIRE SIZE CHANGE CALCULATOR


Can Skinnier Tires Increase Fuel Economy?
