Effective/New Gear Ratios

Use our gear ratio calculator to find the changes to gear ratio when going to a different tire size. Both the effective and new gear ratios are calculated.

Effective Gear Ratio : 1

New Ratio Needed : 1

Use our gear ratio calculator to find the effective gear ratio your vehicle will have with a new tire size. Also calculated is the new gearing you would need in order to return back to your original gear ratio when going to a bigger or smaller tire.

Input your stock and new tires sizes along with your original gear ratio. Click "Calculate" to find your new effective gear ratio and the gear ratio needed to return your vehicle back to stock gearing.



Gear Ratio Chart

Changing tire size will ultimately affect the power and drivability of your vehicle. If you are looking to retain your stock feel or change your gearing to the optimal ratio then you will need this gear ratio chart to do so.

Using the chart, first cross reference your current gear ratio and tire diameter to find your approximate RPM at 65 MPH. Then reference your new tire diameter with your choice of RPM to find the new gear ratio needed to supply you with that RPM.

This chart is based on a drive gear of 1:1 at 65 MPH using a manual transmission. Automatic transmissions will run a slightly higher RPM do to slippage.

The color codes indicate:
 Highway, Good Fuel Economy
 Best Overall Performance
 More Power, Reduced Fuel Economy
