Do I answer honestly?
LOL

Truthfully, its dependent on what you are use to and what you expect.
I like going fast and some do not care for that.
Going fast off the start no longer will happen.
It did drive me bonkers and is why I swapped out gears. It is probably the main reason beside getting better fuel

Now she rips those 37s which ease

But for cruising....the 3.55s are fine

I had to ask FastnUgly the same question.. It is a major concern of mine also.. If i end up going back to 35s I wont worry about it, but now its looking like i am going to go with 37s.... For me I dont care as much about take off speed as much as I do for highway driving a cruising... If you get yours installed before me I am 1. Extremely interested in pictures 2. I am curious how your 3.55 gears perform...

I've ran 4.56s on 35s in an older truck and it ate them up, with 37s it was stock imo...

Cruising is fine!
My 4.56 eat these tires. Especially with the HEMI

Another reason I feel slightly okay with my 3.55s is I once had an 08 F150 with the POS 4.6L V8 in it with a 6" BDS lift, 35s, and stock gears... and some how that truck actually did okay.
