So I'm thinking about getting some drag radials to help with traction. But I'm at a loss whether to go with a 17 or 18" and if I should keep the overall diameter the same or go taller?

My problem now is the best 60' foot I can get on the p-zeros is 2.05-2.09 and I would like to get that down to a 1.7-1.8 with better tires. The car has a 373 ratio and is close to hitting the limiter now in forth matter of fact it will without a tune on the car. I was thinking about going up to a 28" tire to help with that but not sure if I would lose some acceleration with the taller tire.

I'm leaning towards a 305-35-18 which is the same height but 12.50 wide on a 10" wheel. Although if I go to a 295-45-17 the wheels and tires would be cheaper the other option is like a 305-45-18 which is taller but might not even fit but would help the car to drop the revs when going through the traps.

Thanks in advance, for everyone's thoughts and opinions :bigthumbsup

17 or smaller if they can clear the calipers!
