Larger wheels will not affect your horsepower. They will affect your acceleration and 1/4 mile ETs because of the larger rotating mass.

That'* what I thought too....since i can't seem to get any help anywhere else (not intentionally "torque"ing people off or anything) but do any of you know how to disconnect the DRL'*??

you can always fix the wires with solder...

You shouldnt affect the driveability of the car if you are only playing with the headlights. Might want to make sure you can turn them on at night though.
