Tire ride height question....

I'm changing tire brands and the new rear tire is 5mm lower. Would raising the rear height 5mm(penkse shock) put the geometry back as before?

5mm in total? Remember that if the tire diameter is 5mm less than the diameter of your existing tire, it's only a 2.5mm change in the overall geometry.

I'm going from a BT-16 to Q2s. But yeah, it's a 5mm difference. Thanks for the info!
