Probably a ratio in the mid fives to compensate for those tall tires and still have some semblance of acceleration - of course, an OD transmission ........

5.13 = 2733 at 65mph

Are you using the stock axles? I don't know if they will be able to hold up to that large of a tire and that much rotating mass. What size are the tires? 22.5 x 11?? I find this idea very interesting, just worried about the axles taking the abuse. Post some pics so we can see what you are thinking.

Good Luck!

The last road tractor that I owned had a direct trans (no od) 2.73 gears, and 22.5 lo pro tires. It turned around 1550 rpm at 65.
