1. What the tire says.

2. You can get them online or at a local 4wheelparts store. (got mine there)

I got mine here - they also have some of the less common sizes.

Speedometer Gear, Speedometer Gears, Ford, GM, Dodge 700R4

But you may not need a different speedo gear. I used to run 32" tires on my '97 (3 speed auto with 3.07's) - checked the speedo with a GPS and could not tell the difference.
