Slick size info needed- Looking for my 12!! LOL

(See sig) Just started messing with this car a little and installed a built rear with 4.10 gears (previously 3.55's). Anyway I am going to buy some slicks and was looking into the 27x10.5x15 ET STREETS instead of the typical 26x10's. Didn't know if I should go with the 27's to help pull 4th up top (stock heads-cam etc from falling on its face), as well as being able to absorb more initial shock. Any expected ET diff, Trap RPM, experiences, suggestions welcome.

Not sure if it matters but want to buy the right set the first time. Definately going with the ET STREETS though. Thanks.

1995 Mustang GT:
Old Setup: 357 cid, Holley HP950, 200 shot, C4, 3.73's. Best ET: 9.75 @ 135 w/1.34 short on 275 60 15 MT DR's.

I would stick to a 26 tall tire
You will want the shoter tire for the top end charge
If you go with the taller tire the car will most likley be out of the power band when it is going through the traps. or not as far into the power.
