155.09 - You get a lot of potential MPH from the extra size. The trade off is getting the car to 60 foot without bogging the shit out of it.

Here is a link the calculator if you wanna run some numbers. A 3.07 with that tall tire could turn 168mph at 6200rpm! I think it will be awhile before we see a viper running that speed at the drag strip.

I have hit 146.8 with 3.33 and 26' tires. The shift light was on but did not hit the limiter. Don't forget that even a 26'tall tire grows by the time you hit the traps. M/T has the tire height at 26.2, when mounted on a rim.
