Well with the 4 you're gonna want to stay close to stock. The closer you are to stock, the less MPG you'll lose. Really, anything over 33"s I think is a mistake on a 4 DD because you're going to lose so much power and you don't have much to begin with.
I went to 4.56s and 35"s on my 6 and lost ~1 mpg and I can still hit 80 on the highway.
I dunno. Titties. Buy a 6 cyl.
Really, anyway you look at it, you're gonna be underpowered or using too much gas in that 4 banger. BUT if you throw on 4.88s, if you get the cash to swap into a 6 cyl, you'd be good all the way up to 37"s.
Don't dillude yourself. You're making a swap for tire size and you're going to lose somewhere. Tire size is going to determine where.
with the 32's on it now, i can bearly hit 70 on the highway, and thats running like 3500-4000rpms...so we will see what happens here....when i get it back home, engine bet ur buns its engine swap time!!!
