Ground Clearance Change on Bigger Tires?
 
i have a question, if i have normal 265/50/20 tires and have s ground clearance of 10.7 inches as said in advertising and i change them for 275/55/20 which are 1.5inches bigger does the normal ride height changes? also does the Off Road 2 height changes to 12.2inches high?
this is because the tire is bigger than the stick one.
Is my calculation correct?

No you would only gain half of the increase in size which in this case is .75 because the radius is what used not the total diameter.

Radius=diameter/2
