Does correcting the pinion factor for 35" tires affect the transmission in any way. I can live with the speedo being off a bit but if the transmission needs the correction then I will have it done.

The reason I ask is a freind with a Duramax swears the allison transmission must be programmed for the right size tires or the shift points are off.

I talked to my dealer abot puttin 20" wheels on mine and could he change the computer since the power wagon comes stock with them anyway and he said no problem.

See my other post about the horrible mileage. While I do think it may affect shift points, the dealer is unable to fully correct for a 35" tire....at least my dealer. You'll go from being 10% off to 6% off...which is a lot tougher to do the math in your head while you're driving. Honestly I think only certain aftermarket programmers can fully adjust for the larger size.
