Height of a tire Schwalbe Plus tour

Hello,

On my Hybrid Giant Fcr3, I mounted 42-622 (700c - 40 ) Schwalbe Plus tour.
Everything is ok except under the fork
With that tire, i got only 2mm space between the top of the tire and the fork..
That seems way too narrow if anything happen to my tire...
So I'm ok to get less fat tire, but how do I know the height of it before buying it ? It is not written anywhere...

I could go for 40-622 , 37-622, but do their height is different ?

Thanks

Georges

That tire has some huge thick rubber - you could definitely find tires in the same size that will give you better clearance (Soma SV).

Hum you right, he's got big rubber... Well I use my bike for touring on gravel road, which explain I chose Plus tour tires...though I do not need so thick rubber...
