Wild guess here but I'm thinking half of the 5 inches would be 2.5" of extra ride height.

my first reaction was that too, buit since he mentioned actual tire size, i think he wants to know actual difference, not the printed size difference.

having said that i cant see why it would mater because i dont think they would be far enough off to really notice

He may will notice it at full lock.

Just run 42's and loose the 3" body lift.

Valid point. My next suggestion. Buy the new tires, measure them, divide difference in heights by 2, have answer.
