if your chain is loose, no

if it is tight, yes, pick up a few more links or a new chai

if your wheel is slammed in the dropouts the above applies

if not, place the wheel further towards the end of the dropouts

Not a bigger chain, but a longer one, I'm assuming that's what you meant.

And I've heard a few good things about the tractor chain, but I don't have any personal experience with it or personally know anyone with it. So I'd strongly recommend the Odyssey Bluebird, my wheels slammed as much as I can and I keep my chain really tight when I can, also I've bashed it off a curb a couple times now and its still working great.

General rule of thumb is when you go up in sprocket size you will need to add more links. also its suggested that you get you new chain with a new sprocket.

theoretically speaking if you are going from 25 to 28 then you will need 3 links to keep your wheel in the same place with the same tension

Close... 1.5 FULL links. Remember that there are 2 teeth in every link.

You are correct, however, IF you were referring to a HALF link chain.

Even if your chain is loose probably. I went from 25t with a loose chain to a 28 and it didn't fit. Spent like a week waiting for a new chain =(
