It depends on how you ride your bike and what you use it for.
If you have brake(s) to stop and don't skid, why bother.
If you want to do all those cool skids and wear your tires out, then yes.
But still you can just move your tire around or move your chain.
I don't know where you live (flat/some hills/etc.) or how you ride, but I would rather find a comfortable gear ratio first. Then worry about different cog/chain ring combos for skid patches.
