Default Big tire=more speed?

Does bigger tires mean more speed? And if I put a lift and big tires do I need a speed upgrade?

Big tires can equal a 25-30% loss of torque or power. Usually 100 - 150 amp higher control will get you back to square 1... but if you want more power go bigger, like 500 amps.
