What an idiot, here is a little tid-bit of info:

According to THIS speed/RPM calculator assuming you have a .75 4th/5th gear ratio, with 25" tires (12.5" radius), at 8300RPM you would need 7.16 rear axle ratio . . . I assume you don't.

Tell that guy to stop pullin your leg and not be a smartass tryin to make some money and problems.

RPS' Gear Ratio Chart - LINK

You can use math to prove he's an *******!

(don't flame me if I'm wrong, just tryin to help)

I originally had smaller tires on my truck when I put the 17's on. I had simular issues and had to make changes to compensate for such.
the tech should have noticed something like that.
