The Benefits to Changing Your Gear Ratio to Accommodate Taller Tires


Hey guys! It’s Scott over here at G2. We’re on location doing a gear install on a 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500. We recently went from the stock 32 inch tires to about 35’s and noticed right away, like a lot of you have,
a loss of performance, power, torque and also gas economy. Now you got to re-gear.
So we have our G2 goodies here. We have the 410 ring gear, master install kit and
our brand new Brut cover for the GM 1500 we’ll get this installed and we’ll take
it out and show the difference We just finished the gear install and
took it for a test drive and what we noticed immediately was the power and
performance that we gained back from going to a 4.10 gear from a 3.42. Once
we got on the freeway, it wasn’t down shifting out of overdrive. RPM’s maintained
when we went up hills and noticed the gas economy right away came
right back. So you can see with that it really makes sense just re-gear your
truck after you put these larger tires on there just to get the performance
that you want when you bought the truck. For more information check out our

  1. 12 mpg ? I have 2017 Chevy Silverado 4×4 with 6” lift on 35’s bone stock I’m getting with 3.42 gears 13.5 mpg so to spend the money for 12mpg seems like a major waste of money

  2. Wonder if you can help me out. I have a 2016 Chevy Silverado my gears are 3.42 stock. My tire size on tire P265/65R18 What gear should I be at with 35/12.5/20 for 7 inch lift ? Thanks…

  3. Do i need to tune my truck after installing 4.10's? I have a rough country speedometer programmer that i bought when i got 33" tires and it does shift points and speedometer, is that enough?
