Ring and Pinion - Buyer's Guide

When it comes to vehicle performance, the importance of having the right ring and pinion cannot be stressed enough. These components make all the difference in how your vehicle performs, whether you're looking for maximum, out-of-the-hole performance or fuel economy. When you increase the overall wheel and tire diameter on your vehicle, it's crucial to consider upgrading your ring and pinion. As your tire size is increased, your effective gear ratio is reduced. This results in slower acceleration and removing your vehicle from its power band.
