    I plan on gettin a Hi-po (2.8) X-Charger supercharger, Gears, Detriot True Trac, and 20'' Foose Nitrous rims.

    At first, my thoughts were that i should get 4.10 gears but after a lot of reading i see a lot of supercharged Stangs with 3.73's. But since i'm geting 20'' rims and taller tires i should probably go with 4.10's



    Well I've decided to go with Toyo Proxes S/T 255/40/20 and 275/40/20 which is 28.6 inches tall (rear).

    Therefore, according to the tire size and gear ratio chart (posted at the bottom of this post), if i get 4:10s it'll actually feel like 3.88 (Please correct me if i'm wrong) and if i get 3:90s it'll actually feel like 3.71.

    Because of this, i'm kinda leaning toward getting 3:90s along with Detroit True Trac. Does anyone have any ideas of why i should go with 4:10s instead? Keep in mind that my Stang is going to be a road warrior with an X-Charger.

    Any little feedback will be appreciated!



    Here's the cut & paste of 28HopUp's tire size and gear ratio chart:

    3.31:1 with 27" tires = 3.3100:1
    3.31:1 with 26" tires = 3.4373:1
    3.31:1 with 28" tires = 3.1917:1

    3.55:1 with 27" tires = 3.5500:1
    3.55:1 with 26" tires = 3.6865:1
    3.55:1 with 28" tires = 3.4232:1

    3.73:1 with 27" tires = 3.7300:1
    3.73:1 with 26" tires = 3.8734:1
    3.73:1 with 28" tires = 3.5967:1

    3.90:1 with 27" tires = 3.9000:1
    3.90:1 with 26" tires = 4.0500:1
    3.90:1 with 28" tires = 3.7607:1

    4.10:1 with 27" tires = 4.1000:1
    4.10:1 with 26" tires = 4.2576:1
    4.10:1 with 28" tires = 3.9535:1

    4.30:1 with 27" tires = 4.3000:1
    4.30:1 with 26" tires = 4.4653:1
    4.30:1 with 28" tires = 4.1464:1
