    So i have a chance right now to get a great deal on 255/85/16's but dont have the money to do a regear right at this time.

    Those of you with a 4 banger and 33's how long before you regeared?
    Do you think its necessary right away?
    What was your mileage like before after regear?

    Or any other comments, id really like to jump on the new tires!

    2009 4x4 reg cab. Modded with more to come
    Polished 16x8 Pro Comp 1069's 4" BS Nitto Mud Grapplers 305/70/16 Magnaflow & glasspack muffler Stainless tip K&N 63 series Aircharger Vent visors Autometer volt and dig. temp. gauge custom mounted Factory chrome rear bumper (not black factory, one) TRD pedal covers TRD skid plate Hurst T handle shift knob Rear Tint Clear bra on the sides Chrome extinguisher Icon non resi coilovers, ICON RR shocks, black seat covers. And some other crap
    The money you save on the 'good deal' 33" tires, you will spend more than that on the gas your truck will drink, over the life of the 33" tires. Then you could add extra money on that for the wear and tear on the clutch, driveline, brakes wheel bearings etc.

    I have a reg cab 2009 4 banger and I really can't imagine running 33's on a 4 banger without regearing. I was debating between 33's and 32's and so glad I didn't get 33's.

    On the other hand I have not actually ran 33's just 32's so who knows maybe the extra 1" diameter and extra weight isn't such a big deal. Pep Boys has a good looking MT in 16x33" they usually have for buy 3 get one free. Ends up being like $550 installed after the mail in rebate. That's half what I paid for my 32" kumho's installed, tax, balance blah blah. Even though my Kumhos cost twice as much, in the end I feel a little better knowing I'm not tearing my truck up as much and I can still use 5th gear on the freeway without having to ge-gear.

    Now if I ever decide to do a 6" lift, some of what I just said goes out the window:)

    I'm looking into the 255/85/16 tire as well(cooper discovery), lighter then the 285 so I'm hoping it's around the same as the 265/75 mt's that I run right now.

    I have a 2.7L and i put 265/70/17 on it and its fine going 55 but get on the interstate and man it really works hard. Pulling a trailer to, it really works hard to get up to 45. Not to hijack your thread because its kind of the same questions, but what would be a good gear to put in it? And i thought i heard where a Ford rear end would work, is that so? I doubt the lug pattern matches up, but was just wondering. :cool:

    i run a 4banger with a 3" lift and 33" mud tires (285/75/16 KM2's). My truck struggles when going up hills and when in 4hi some times its struggles through mud pits but crawling up hills is fine in 4low. Im going to be installing a 6" lift and im debating on throwing 35's on. Im for sure adding 4.56's or 4.88 in front and rear

    I've got the 255/85/16 Km2's on my truck with stock 4.10 gears. It isn't particularly hilly around where I live, so I have no problems with them. Interstate can be a pain once you get into hilly areas, though. I can still haul my boat and 4wheeler at the same time though. Gas mileage dropped by maybe 1 mpg, most likely because I tend to drive the county highways at 60 mph. At that speed, she purrs along like stock. In town, the mileage really dropped, I bet I don't get over 16 in town now.

    ^ damn son. no more than 16 in town :eek: ill definetly be going 4.56 cause the rpm's will be the exact same they are now and a few other people with 4 cylinders and 4.56 (drew02a) really likes his setup and really thinks that it helped.

    a little late to the party, but i got some 275/70/17's coming tomorrow. Not really worried about highway performance. it'll get there when it gets there. i figure when im offroading, i'll be in 4lo anyways... do i really need to re-gear? i doubt it , buy only you guys that have 4 bangers will know for sure? have i bitten off more than i could chew?

    mine has so much more weight then a mini that its gonna be pushing so i think im gonna go with some multiple peoples advice on this one. first of camburg spindles, sliders, arb locker and compressor. i think with that adding weight and then some heavier wheels and tires that i am running 4.56 sounds like a good idea.

    oh and nakedtacoma, when you say mini what do you mean? just the base truck without being prerunner or what?
