I've already played with that pun intended.

If you only look at height the difference is still small.

Check it out:
My stock tire (225/50/16): 24.9" DIA
Recommended tire (235/40/17): 24.4" DIA
Style 68 front recommended (225/45/17): 25.0" DIA
Style 68 rear recommended (245/40/17): 24.7" DIA
Style 68 front oversized (235/45/17): 25.3" DIA
Style 68 front oversized (255/40/17): 25.0" DIA

Of course width and offset play a part as well.
I believed the tires were too big from from the moment I bought the rims.
But I wanted to see what others were running and what they had to say.
I'll have to try them on to be sure.
