I think what you mean is ride height, not having an effect on the stock rims. Get out a calculator and check. I wouldn't worry about ride height so much on the wheels as I would rolling diameter. If you change that radically, your gear ratio effectively changes along with a couple of other things like rotational inertia (weight) and accuracy of your speedometer.
