would you verify that tyre size again as it works out to fourty inches, also 1700 rpm at what speed?
I edited, I checked it with the tire size calulator, I got 39.4"...... 55mph ..... this is for my new freightliner.... no axle tag and i need to know the gear ratio.

3.55ish, it would be a bit more accurate if you measure the tires with a tape, they usually never measure out to what they're supposed to...
ok thanks, that would be 3.58's (common in a freightliner).
