thats gonna be rough on the 30... but when you have 35s the gearing will work fine, rstangboi is on 35s with 4.88s, i would ask him if he ever had 33s on it before he threw on the 35s... but you will be able to drive it, it might be over geared. let us know!

oh on a side not i know lots of toyota guys run 5.29s with 33-35 inch tires... so it might work for you.

toyos don't make the same power nissans run 5.13s stock.

not hugely worried about over gearing i mean it spins tires now and i would be very happy if it spun them in 4hi just saying
