You want the front tires to spin faster, with 4.10's in the rear axle and 3.73's in the front axle you will be spinning the front faster like you would want.

At just 1000 RPM's and a direct 1 to 1 transmission drive ratio, the rear tires with 4.10 gears would be spinning 243.90 RPM's, and the front tires with 3.73 gears would be spinning at 268.09 RPM's.

At 6000 RPM's your 35 inch tires would be spinning at 167.5 MPH with 3.73 gears and 152.4 MPH with 4.10 gears.

with faster spinning tires on the rear it will be next to impossible to control as the rear will want to come around on you all the time, the faster spinning tires on the front will want to drag the rear straight behind it at all times.
