Bigger tires

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

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.
