Drag Racing & tire height?
I'm ready to pull the trigger on a pair of Mustang 17x9 wheels and drag radials. With the 3.06's my stock 28.6" tall tires are just right in terms of crossing the stripe in the VERY top of 3rd gear.
Looking at my choices in DR's I can get them 28" tall, or 25.7".
My question is would I be better off taking advantage of the shorter tire as added gearing, or go with the taller tire to maintain proper gear/RPM at the finish line?
In addition to the mod's in my sig I will be ordering a converter in the very near future (as soon as I decide what brand and stall).
