There is also increase in weight of the tyre.

All the above have some type of implications. For example the increase in height will change the weight distribution of the bike while so changing the ride height. These In turn will change the handling dynamics of the bike considerably. The increase in tyre weight translates to increase in unsprung weight. This in turn affects the suspension dampening and rebound rates.
