    700's have a .70 overdrive ratio. the best gear ratio is going to depend on your tire size. I have 38.5's and am going with 4.88's Remember everybody, your worst enemy with going to bigger tires is the weight increase. 1 pound of rotating weight is equivilant to 7 pounds of vehicle weight. you need to regear to regain all that lost power

    35's you'd want 4.56...my 4.10's barely cut it, I'd like more gearing. 37's go 4.88

    Im running 4.88s with 35s and 700r4. with overdrive i can still haul a$$ on the free way. 4.56 would be good but if you ever plan on going bigger might as well do the 4.88s. its still very drivable on the SoCal autobahn with the slight increase in RPM.

    I've got 35's & 4.56
    If I had a chance to do it over, I'd go 4.88

    Mine has 4.56 with 35's I don't mind it at all. The OD helps a lot.
