How tall is a 245/40/17 or 245/50/17?

I currently have 235/70/15 wheel and tire combo. I measured this combo and got approximately 27" from floor to top of tire. Can someone please tell me how tall the above combo would be? Thanks.

24.7 for the 245/40-17
26.6 for the 245/50-17
Of course these numbers vary slightly by tire brand.

Here is another great calculator

http://www.rims-n-tires.com/rt_specs.jsp

245/40/17 = 24.7"
245/50/17 = 26.7"

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold

I just pulled out a set of tires that were on my 300zx. Size 225/50/16. Quite a bit smaller in height, but wider. I thought that 235 were wider then the 225. Looks as if I just need to go to a tire place an do some fitting.

Dave

P.S. Maybe it has a bigger backspacing?
