Bontrager Race Lite Hard vs Marathons cross sections

I tried to put a pair of 700x28 Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires in my road-to-commuter bike but they rubber the brake attachment points due to its high cross section (30mm).
The always kind Evans Cycles staff recommend me the Bontrager Race Lite Hard as they have a lower cross section from bead to thread.
Do you agree? Can you measure them out of the rim for me?
Best regards.
