Tire width does nothing to your et, other than get traction or not. Tire height can effect et, 60ft, and top end mph. The taller the tire, the more mph can be achieved. Changing your tire it's like changing your entire gear stack by a %. If you are running out of gear at the top end, a taller tire will get you a little more mph at a given rpm than a shorter tire. And vise versa.
