Drivetrain Buyer’s Guide – Choosing Ring & Pinions

Ring and pinions are one of the best ways to restore lost performance and fuel economy due to larger tires. By restoring your truck to factory gearing, you will bring your vehicle's engine back into the factory-designed operation RPM band.

What Gears Can Do for You

Avoid losing power & gas mileage when adding larger tires. The diagram below shows the impact of installing larger tires and changing the overall drive ratio on your vehicle.
