    Pros
    More surface area on the ground via larger radius, possibly more MPH, effectively raises gear ratio, changes weight bias.

    Cons
    Possible interference, effectively raises gear ratio, changes weight bias.

    There could be more and some can go either way depending on your combination needs.

    Not sure what kind of times,rpm and mph you run now but odds are you will see very little change.Just curious what are you trying to gain?If you are looking for larger changes look to the gearing. Approx 6 less rotaions of the tire in the 1/4 going to a 29" tire.... JMO

    The weight ain't going to transfer to the rear wheels as well so you might have probs hooking up.
