Any advantage to running a tall tire over standard tire?

I was just wondering if there is any advantage to running a tall tire(1 3/16) over a standard tire (1 1/16)? Thanks

Shorter tire better 60' and quicker et.  Taller tire slower 60' and et but more MPH as a basic guide!

Are these statements true only if running same gearing or after gearing has been changed accordingly for tire size?
