Default Will a 27 inch tall tire hurt or help me?

New drag setup I'm looking at picking up are 27 inches tall. My stock tires are 25.7 tall.

So is this going to be an issue or no?

BTW, these are them:

are those Diamond Star's?
If so, save em for the IRS guys!

Why get a 16 in. wheel if you dont need to? Seems like 15 would be the way to go.

A taller tire would be like stepping down in your gear ratio. If you are having traction issues off of the line, then yes it would help.

Yes. And I think the longer gearing will help build boost in the lower rpms....

Turbos love to be loaded. Being that a taller tire effectively increases the amount of work your engine has to do to turn them, the turbo will be moar happy.

*edit* Glad you did it.

I would bog with my DR's as that was the only way they would hold a launch and I'd still pull a 2.0 60'
