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
