You didn't say whether the towers were fixed or crank up. I have a Tri-Ex W-51 telescoping tower that I leave at about 40 feet. If I want to raise it, I can. But so far I haven't felt or seen the need to go higher. So if the concern then becomes cost, if the 40 footer is cheaper, I'd say go with it. But then, I don't know all that I really need to know about your location, soil type or other factors that determine the best heighth for you to use for optimum reception.
I am sure you'll get more answers. Check Steve's site on QRZ.com that he referred to. He usually has a wealth of good info.
