Default Tire and Gear question.

If I went with 33x10.50R15 tires, would I have to re gear?

You'll be fine. If you have 3.73's it might be a LITTLE sluggish but it won't be bad. Same goes for if you have 4.10's.

I don't even know what gears I have on now. How do I check that?

Check the sticker on the inside of your door. Click that link that STL posted and it'll tell you what to look for and whatnot.
