18" or 20" drag radials

I have a 1ss m6. I'm looking to get drag radials.What would be the correct size to give me the best results,18" or 20" I thought I read about the smaller size being better. I have an extra set of 235 X 18 that I have studded snow tires on now so I was wondering if I could save cash by putting the drag radials on them. Any advise would be appreciated.

If you want the car to hook at the track, I'd go with an 18"dr...more sidewall to flex the better.

But I like the looks of 20's and I don't track enough to have a separate set. But if you already have a set I would use them.

18" better for traction because of larger profile
