Bigger tires changing your gear ratio say if you had like 3.50 before you put your bigger tires on your stock tire use to do a full rotation every time the drive line spins 3 and a half times now that you have bigger tires your no longer doing a full rotation for the 3 and a half turns so at freeway speeds your engine is revving a lot higher :)
