The rev counter is based off of engine rpm and is not related to the rear wheels at all. So the revs indicated will be unaffected by the rear wheel diameter. If he isn't using the wheels for anything more than competition, it'll be fine leaving it as is. However since you're reflashing the car to 93R when you autox and back again when you drive streets, why not just have bama send you an updated 93r with your comp wheel size? The SCT device carries 3 tunes anyways. Just change label to "87P Street" and "93R Comp".
