Cross tire diameters

I thought that thread about the Subaru Outback was pretty cool. I'm hoping for one someday.

Do cross tires have a significantly larger diameter than the road tire of the same size?

I don't own a gravel bike but conditions in my rural area can cause problems for a road bike with 28mm tires. So I bought some 35s for my ride, a 2004 Schwinn Super Sport which is a flat bar road bike. It falls in that category of not all road bike but not all hybrid.

The Michelin Protek Cross looked great and I really like them. The front went on ok but could use more clearance. The rear wouldn't work. The tire rubber against the brace for the chainstays so I'm sending them back and I'm thinking of the same tire in 700c x 30mm. Will this work or not?
