    Default True width of our wheels ?

    I was just wondering, if my wheels are in size 8x18, then why in real they are 9x18?!

    Is it like that with all wheels?
    7.5=8.5
    8=9
    9=10 ???

    An 8j wheel is the width of the internal bead seat area for the tyre

    You are measuring external bead width there.
