Re: Bigger tires, Re-gear?
Do you think that the person that told you that "you have to re-gear" would be talking about the speedometer? If not, then maybe he was thinking that if you wanted the same stock performance you would have to re-gear. Gears are an alternative way to add power to your truck. Sure you could add a larger engine or add hp boosting parts but if you are not geared for the way you want to drive, then all that hyped up hp may not help. NASCAR's change their gears for every race... go figure. Bottom line is, I guess, if you are satisfied with the performance after the new tires, they are fine... If not, then either beef up the engine or switch gears. Keep in mind that it will probably be cheaper to change gears. Also, if it is geared to high (for speed) then more hp won't help in the lower end for pulling or climbing.
For what it is worth, you have my two cents.
