just wondering if anyone runs 32's but didnt regear? does it affect performance that much or at all? if anyone has regeared, what does that do to your gas mileage? thx for your time

It wouldnt be worth the money to regear with only 32s in my opinion. You have the V6 so you should be fine especially if you have a TRD with 4.10 gears to begin with. If this is something you want to do then your mileage should increase as long as you dont go with too low of gears. I have 4.56s that are waiting to go in with my 33s. The only reason I decided to regear is the fact that highway downshifting was getting annoying and the better crawl ratio will help off the the road. Hope this helps.

I recently lifted mine and am now running 35's. I do not rock crawl and have only noticed a small amount of power lose. I also have not went on a long trip but with just 32'a you should have more than enough power to turn them almost just like stock.

I ran 32x11.5's on my 98 2.7l stock 4.10 geared for about 8 months, noticed some power loss and mpg loss. Went to 33x12.5's geared it to 4.88 and can't believe i didn't do the switch sooner. For 32's and a v6 you will be fine stock geared.

thx everyone for your time....i dont completely understand the whole regearing thing, sry...i mean, when u say higher gears, are you talking bout number (going from 4.10 to 4.56??) i would get better gas mileage if i regeared? i thought it decreased gas mileage (like i said, im not real sure about this) thx for your time....more opinions are welcomed..

Just like the others stated...running 32s with V6 shouldn't be a problem. Gas milleage may decrease but not much. I'm running 32s on stock rims with V6 and getting round 17-19 mpg. It's also depend how your driving habit too not just the tires themselves. I personally wouldn't spend money on regearing if you stick with 32's may be with bigger tires...>= 33's. ;)

Before you think about regearing, get a filter charger. K&N or fab one yourself using one that is sold at your local parts counter. I went to 33x12.5 with 2.7, notice power loss so I put a filter on it. It made a noticable diff. IMO of course
