What is "Plus Sizing" and what are the benefits?

Plus sizing is an option allowing drivers to customize the appearance and performance of their vehicle by mounting lower profile tires on larger diameter wheels. One-inch greater wheel diameter is referred to as plus-one, two inches is plus-two... and so on. Using a lower profile tire with a greater diameter rim allows the overall diameter to remain about the same, giving your vehicle a unique look with a new wheel and tire package.  You can find a complete lists all the wheels available for your vehicle at: Wheel Brands.

What would be Tire Rack's recommendation for the max. overall diameter difference between the original tire and a +1 size (percentage). I've heard between 1 and 3% max. Thanks.
