After upgrading your vehicle to larger tires, most will notice a "loss of power" or lag when accelerating compared to stock. This is due to the larger diameter of the tires, rolling resistance and weight of the new tires putting additional stress on your drivetrain. The factory gear ratio was not meant to accommodate this change and you may find it difficult to engage your final gear ratios and most likely a loss of fuel economy. Re-gearing your vehicle can bring your vehicle back to factory settings which can save you money on gas and additionally, help improve your off road performance.
