    Default 3.73's to 4.10's or 4.56's

    Here's what me and a buddy are thinking
    07 4 door silverado 2wheel drive with stock 3.73s
    has 22's and a 5.3L

    What I thinking is 4.10's for better take off and such to add due to the rims and rotors I added make the truck heavier.
    And my buddy says goto 4.56's.

    Wanting different gears due since it is a heavy truck with just a 5.3.

    price isn't an option.

    And I have a programmer that has the option to tune to 4.10s or 4.56

    Go with the 4.10s. The 4.56s will give you awesome low end power, but will really kill your topend, limit your top speed, and kill your mileage.

    What was your original (stock) tire size and what is your new tire size? (Rim size is not enough; I'm going to use the data you provide to show you a little something on a chart...)

    doesnt matter if theyre 22's or 18's, rim size has nothing to do with the question at hand. its the TIRE size that affects your power. like surreal asked, what is your tire size? ALSO, would you rather have more low end and less MPG, or vice versa? the choice comes down to your personal preference...
