Tire size to gear size?
It's all about the moment arm of the gear (I derive most of my knowledge from aviation), so basically the front gear is the drive gear, the smaller it is the more torque you get directly from your engine. The rear gear is the shaft gear. The larger it is (the more teeth) the easier it is for the engine to move the shaft which is directly connected to your wheels. hopefully that helps everyone understand how it works, just gotta think about it.
My question is, I have 22x11x9 inch tires as apposed to the stock 20x10x9 ones. Is it safe to go down teeth on the front sprocket? I don't want to break any teeth off, at the same time I do have a limited amount of space between my skid plate and rear gear, (i doubt that i'd be adding that many teeth anyways)
