I switched from drops to porteur bars and I added 30mm to the stem length, and I may need to add more. I like a decently aggressive position, but drop bars never worked for my hands.

Above around 15mph aerodynamics will be what holds you back, not tire size or frame geometry. An upright riding position is simply not efficient. You won't be able to go very fast.
