3096 rpm with the 4.11 gears, 2810rpm with the 3.73 gears, and 2674 rpm with the 3.55 gears.

Your tire height should be 26.76'' roughly. Take 245 and divide by 25 to get your approximate section width in inches... = 9.8''. Multiply that by aspect ratio (.60) = 5.88''. Multiply this by 2 = 11.76, and then add rim diameter.. 15'' = 26.76''.

Formula for rpm at speed is ...

rpm = (rear gear ratio x final trans ratio x 336 x mph) all divided by tire height.

However, all tire heights are not created equal! Measure yours to be accurate.
