I just bought a corvette body for my womp womp and I want to put some big hub Pro-Track drag tires on the rear. I was just wondering what would be the ideal size for a womp so that i still maintain the level of traction a womp should have? Also, I read a little about independent spinning front wheels on the womps. How would I go about setting this up?

Hope this helps? And I've explained well enough?
Have Fun! :)

Drag tire would work if you could bring them down to .910.

"910 would work"
I find obscure references annoying.
Did you mean superglue or... oh wait, diameter !

For handling. I run the smallest required for that class and can still make the required min. clearence. Sometimes that means making the holes oblong up & down and soldering the bushings in but I have all the jigs, jig wheels and goodies to make sure they are straight and level.
Drag tires won't work real well on a road course. Good luck.

Ok I know you can get a way with .910 size tires, on a womp with a 31 gear, and bend the chassis.
Just checked PCH and they do not have .910 drag tries.
I have to try this now, the drag rims look nice.
We used to use protrack tire and arm dye.

"? But to make independent front wheel is easy! Use a short brass spacer and solder to the end of one axle, remove the set screw from one wheel, this will be the free wheeling one, assemble that axle and spacers onto chassis, and then use the other front tire to lock onto the axle. There ya have it!!"
You also need to remember to oil the axle and free spinning wheel.
Racers have also been known to bend the rear of the chassis when using taller tires to lower the CG.
