My understanding, but I am no expert, is that you need to match it up with your rear end gears. In general, wide ratio will do better with a higher geared rear end (i.e. 2.75 or 3.00) and close ratio will do better with lower gears (3:90). Close ratio the gear spacing is closer and thus the engine RPM stays closer to the engine power range as you change gears.

You probably want to get feedback from people that have both and different rear end ratios. I suspect Wide Ratio is probably better for cruising and normal everyday driving, while close ratio would be good for the strip.
