If you are talking about going from a 14" to 15" rim it depends on the tire. You can change rim size but still keep the same tire size (roughly all brands very a bit) and have no change on the speedo.

As far as I know electric pumps push fuel mech. pull. I have always installed in the rear as close to tank outlet as possible. Besides it keeps it cleaner under the hood.

^^^^^ What he said! Mount your pump low and as close to the tank as you can and you'll be fine.

What are you going to do with the car in the future? If its a daily driver either will work. Mech. does take some hp not sure how much. Elelectric can be noisy. I prefer elec. I like my engine comp. clean. Oh yea I should answer your question I have never seen both being used. I dont think it would help anything and probably not good for either pump.

One or the other on the fuel pumps. Putting them in series will be higher pressure that could overpower the floats and flood the cab. Also the mechanical has a diaphragm and if it ever leaks its 50/50 whether it is on the ground or into the engine. You don't want an electric pushing gas into the mechanical if that ever happens.

Both pumps push gas, but the mechanical is better at self priming. Electrics do much better near the fuel source near or below the lowest level of the tank.

Push pumps are inconsistent when pulling the fuel and it will over work the pump.
