WIDTH

Hot Rod - - The Easy Way & The Hard Way -

While calipers are ideal, you can eye­ball a tape mea­sure or ruler be­tween the in­side width of the beads to mea­sure wheel width (3.5 inches here). This will ul­ti­mately dic­tate the tire size; on smaller-di­am­e­ter wheels, it will also re­veal the width lim­i­ta­tions against the tie rod, con­trol arm, or shock mount be­cause those items are pack­aged in com­pet­ing space.

[ Mea­sur­ing be­tween the beads (and not across the lips of the wheel), we get 3.5 inches.
