assuming that .85 is correct, looks like about 3205 at 70 in od
35's or 37's would put it right ion the sweet spot for a 4cyl.

Well with my current 4.30 gears and 33's it likes the mid 2000 rpm range at 55-60 , and foot on the floor with a tail wind will net 70-75mph


with the 5.29's it doesn't look much different running about 2500 rpms at 55

I had a 4runner with 5.29's and 33's
at about 3500 rpm the speedo said I was running 70 but it was a little off. I was actually doing closer to 65 if I remember right.
