Question about DSC DTC and tire grip

I was wondering if I had grippier tires would I be putting more power to the wheels during hard acceleration because I wouldn't be spinning the tires and activating DSC/DTC? Obviously when the traction control is completely off it wouldn't matter.

Yes. Obviously tires with more grip allow you to accelerate better, aka more power to the wheels.

more power to the ground. the power to the wheels has nothing to do with your tires.
