What tire size with nitrous?

As some of you know, I have been running my car on 28" ET streets and they are to big. I have the chance to trade them for some 26x11.5x15 Hoosier quick time pro's. My question is are the 26"s going to be to short to run the car on spray? The combo is a stock motor 5spd. 90/10 and 50/50 and 4.10's the car weighs 3100# with me in it. Should i keep my tires or go ahead and trade?

Depends on how much you spray it...but with 4.10's you may run out of rpms with 26's.

Looks like i may need to hang on to the 28''s then? the car will probably run a 150 shot untill i build a new motor then maybe a 200 shot for "special" occasions.
