Will these Hoosiers help or hurt my 1/4 time?

An old timer tells me going to the 45 is going to mess up my gear ratio says I need a shorter tire. Will these tires help or hurt my 1/4 mile? 10.83 is my best so far. And I don’t have the money to pony up for a drag pack right now so looking for a quick fix to improve time until next year.

You will pick up with that tire purely because it will dead hook. Likely will 60 foot in the low 1.5's. But unless you are running a certain class or have picky NHRA TECH officials I would not reccomend that tire. I would run the 28X10.5R18 DBR Hoosier if you can find them. Or the 305/45R18 Mickey Thompson ET STREET R if you MUST have a DOT tire. Don't listen to the Old Timers. I am one, but not stuck in the past. Things are much different now.
I want a tire I can drive in the street too. Or is that just not good. If it will dead hook why won’t I want it ? It will slow me down further down the track?
