Default tire diameter effect on gearing w/ xxx-t

i noticed today when mounting my Losi ribs and kingpins that when mounted they are 10mm taller than the speedhawgs i have been using for bashing. I'd assume that since i've been running the speed hawgs, my final drive has been numerically higher...any clue how much shorter this made my gearing? I am running the stock 86T spur with a 17T pinion on the Mamba Max 7700. my motor temps while bashing are pretty manageable, so i've been curious about coming up a tooth or two on the pinion to get even more top-end and help with traction, but i'm just curious what measureable difference the tire diameter brings to the table re: gearing.

thanks.
