I agree, a 28" tire would probably work better. They hook better than a 26", you will more than likely be able to leave harder, and they will keep your RPM's down on the top end.
edit: Actualy, with the 3.31 rear gears, you might be better off with the 26"s. Your top mph @6000rpms with the 28" tires would be around 150mph, where as with the 26" tire, it would be around 140. Either one would work, but the more mechanical advantage, the better in most cases.
With that gear ratio your best bet is going to be 26” tires. While 28” would certainly hook better, it would lower your RPM too much on the big end and most likely result in slower ET’s and trap speeds.
I’m with Bently429 though, your most likely going to be closer to the 130mph range. If you were to go with something along the lines of a 275 50 15 drag radial….at 130mph your looking at 5600rpm in 4th. Conversely, if you went with a 28” tire….say something along the lines of a 275 60 15 drag radial…at 130mph your looking at a little over 5100rpm, which IMHO far too low of an RPM range.
Generally its 26" tire for 3.27's and 28" tire for 3.55's depending on what your planning on or are trapping. Millhouse is right but I think you would benifit from the taller tires in the 60'. I run 3.55's and 28's in my car.
