S10 T5 trans likely has a .72 ratio, but may have a .83 or .85 if your lucky, but these were more common pre 1985.


judging by the project 33 calculator, you'll be turning 1,725 RPM at 65 MPH in 5th. 2,549 RPM in 11st going 20 MPH.. with a 3.73

I'd say 3.73 would be a good choice but heres the calcs anyway http://www.project33.com/tiresize.cfm#trans_rpm
