OK..."for dummies" so to speak...

1.) You have to rotate both tires at the same time (for 1 revolution) while you count the driveshaft.
2.) If you hold 1 tire and turn the other one, you must turn it twice to get the ratio...I seriously HOPE you don't have 6's...


By the way...if you want them:

Tire size is it's diameter (in case you didn't know. )

mph x gear ratio x 335 / tire size = rpm
or...
(rpm x tire size) / (mph x 336) = gear ratio
