In my 8", with 26" tall tires I'm running 3:80's. She turns 3000 rpm at 65 mph.
Hope that helps

Got a 4:11 Richmond in mine

Love it , thinking 4:56

the 3:73 range is about right for street.

I personally havent found anyone who makes 3.73's for an 8 inch. 3.80's are quite a bit for a c-4 but if you dont mind doing 60 on the interstate i would go with those. Otherwise 3.55's sound good.
