What year/car do you have? Yea, 4.10's are fine. If you have a 5spd you'll be around 3000rpm at 70-75. I have 3.73, and run 2750 at 75mph.

Go with 4.10s even if you do a lot of highway driving. The oft-repeated statement that they will destroy your gas mileage is a myth, usually posted by someone who has never had them and is repeating what they "heard" from some other bozo who 'heard" it from someone else.
