my 26" tall tires do 2800 at 60 with 3.70 gears. that's with a 4 speed, not an auto. no, i didn't get that from looking at my speedo- i used a formula in The Auto Math Handbook. 3500 would be in the 4.56 area, for me at least. taller tires will lower the rpm, shorter will raise it.

I have 4.10's now with 26" tall tires, I will go out on the highway and see for myself. I could have sworn I turn more RPM than that (when not in OD). I had a car with 4.56's before as well and I know it buzzed pretty high. Mine is automatic, so I guess that could be the difference.
