is it pointless to do both the gears and get 20's? or would it help but not make as big of diff.
Nope. Even if you calculate your tire size to maintain your current final drive ratio, you are still adding rotational mass to your drivetrain, so power will be sacrificed for pretty-points if you go big.so even with big tires and rims with big gears you still turn the same rpms as you did when had 17.i am confused people have been telling me when i get my new tires and rims taller and wider that it will be like my 410 will be like 373 or 390.but if i am still turning the same rpms want it be the same power :headscratch:.
How are heavier wheels going to help with accleration?imo, you would be surprised on how many people "suggest" now that 20" wheels will kill your performance, speed, etc....Then look at them a couple of years later and see that they are running 20"s themselves :headscratch:
20"s + 4.10s on a stock GT would see an improvement in the acceleration dept......braking and ride comfort...well, that's another thing :gringreen
Yes, you are correct. But I said, 20"s + 4.10s on a stock GT would see an improvement in the acceleration dept...How are heavier wheels going to help with accleration?
20" wheels will kill your performance and speed, but how concerned should one be with high end performance and speed on a city street? That is what a track is for and if you are running 20's there, more power to you, because I certainly will not be doing that.
It's no different than getting drilled rotors. They aren't these worldbeaters in braking performance, but people get them because they look good. 20's are no different.
