Bigger tires

Will installing bigger tires messup the transmission shift points? Can it cause actual damage to the tranny? Thanks guys

How big are you talking? What about some specs on your truck?

if you go up a couple inches in overall diameter, it wont affect anything. Although if you tried to put some 40's on there, then yea....

Right now it has 265/75/16s on it. I am thinking about going to 32/11.5/15. Its a 2000 ranger 4x4 4.0L with the 5 speed auto. With the current tires i have 682 revolutions per mile and with the 32s it would be 655 revs per mile.

Mine was acting a lil different when I moved up on tire sizes. Beard suggesting resetting the computer. Worked like a charm, shifted like the day I bought it. D/c the battery for 15 minutes. Yeah, yeah. You'll have to reset your radio resets but oh well. lol

How does that work? I have slightly larger tires on my truck, and I was thinking about taking it to the stealership and have them reprogram my speedo.
