Gear Ratio Calculation Basics

Your axle gear ratio determines how many times your driveshaft rotates for every full tire rotation. For example, a 3.73 gear ratio requires 3.73 driveshaft rotations to turn your tires once around. You should be able to find your gear ratio listed on the axle tag, however, if that has gone missing, you can simply count the number of teeth on each gear and divide the number of ring gear teeth by the number of pinion gear teeth.

[ Ring Gear Teeth / Pinion Gear Teeth ] = [ 41 / 11 ] = [ 3.73 ]
