Who has run taller rear tires?

Thinking of a drag setup... Has anyone run ~28" rear tires (DR) daily driven, and did you have ESP/ABS issues? If so, was there a fix for it?

28 overall is way too big. You might get away with 26 witch is one inch larger.

You can go with wider tires and slightly more positive camber. 28 overall diameter is 3 inch over stock and i dont think you will be able to fit.

I'm running a staggered setup with the HMS flares - 255 fronts and 325's in the rear, just under the 3% threshold that is often mentioned. Mickey's, Michelin cups and a few other dedicated track tires are avail in that size....

What sidewall ratio and rim diameter are yours?

Thanks!

That ratio is what I'm really getting at - does anyone with tuning or factory programming experience know if a 3% front/rear tire diameter difference is the threshold above which our computers freak out and throw ESP/ABS lights?
