Depends on the individual tire, but their about 34.5" tall on average. So their just a hair shorter than 35s as 35s aint always 35" tall. Example here

315 is the width. 315milimeters The second number is a percetage that gives you the height. 315/75/16 means the sidewall hieght is 75% of 315 mm from the rim to the top of the tire. A 315/75/16 is comparable to a 35x12.50R16. A 315/70/17 is about the same for a 17" rim. Theres only a handful of tires that actually measure what they're called.
