Have a 2WD Chevy Silverado with 3" suspension lift.
Want to put 285/75-16's on her.
What are some of the things I should expect with this size of tire?
I know the speedo will change.
But how bout the gearing, will that change?
Anyone out there with first hand experience on this matter?
Could use the information. Preciated. Thanx....

Your final gearing will be higher. Unless you change the axle gearing, you will have less low end power, but more top speed.

The tires arn't that big, so new gears would probably be a waste of money. You might want to look into small engine upgrades to put a little "umf" back in though. Depends on your driving style.
