Rim Width

The width of the wheel is measured from bead seat to bead seat, this is not the overall width of the wheel.
Example: a 7 x 15" rim will have an overall width of approximately 8" inches.
You will need to use the overall width when working out Backspaces or offsets.
This measurement is in inches.
