That's the diameter of the wheel rim, without the tyre on it. You do,

Have a look at some/all of the following. The 'rim diameter' is the
dimension that you are describing.

And we should clarify it's measured in real inches not man inches :0)

The cause of many a car parking accident,

"Yes go on ,, keep coming , you've got another 12 inches......THUD"
