The stock FJ60 tires that came on the car when it rolled off the dealer's lot all those many years ago had a diameter of 28.3 inches. The difference between 33 inch tires and 28.3 inch tires is significant, both in power/torque/acceleration and braking. The stock differential gears in the axle housing of the FJ60 are 3.73. 4.10 or higher ratios are more suitable for 33 inch tires. Nothing can be done to improve the braking performance when moving up to larger tires except to drive more carefully.
