trinexepac + DMI fungicide?

I was planning on spraying my lawn soon with trinexepac-ethyl (Primo Max). I was strongly considering combining it with a cheaper fungicide at a preventative rate.

I've heard a bunch of the DMIs, propiconazole, triadimefon, etc have growth-regulator effects and was wondering if this could have negative consequences to my grass (tall fescue). Or would I be better off with a strobilurin?

Thanks,

What kind of grass? I know that is a no no on bermuda and other low cut warm season grasses. Ok, on high cut cool season grasses.
