 ```The wheel diameter measurement is taken on the inner flange where the tire bead seats. Meaning you can't directly measure it with a tire mounted on the wheel (however, in that situation all you have to do is read the diameter off the tire's sidewall). With no tire mounted, it still isn't something you can directly hold a tape against. The easiest way is to directly measure the inside depth of the outer flange, multiply that by two, and subtract it from the overall diameter. For practical purposes, you will find that the flange is generally close to 1/2" or 5/8". So while your B's wheel measures 15" overall, the nominal diameter is 14". The C has 15" wheels. on 10/7/02 7:04 PM, JAMES SCHULTE at schultejim@prodigy.net wrote: > Listers, > I go to this guys place and he has 5 wires to sell. > He doesn't know what they are off of let alone what > size.
