    Bottlefed;

    Track is measured from the centreline of each wheel/tire. It can be changed by rim offsets as well as spacers etc. I usually get pretty close by measuring the track from face of wheel hub to face of wheel hub. This usually gets you within a very close estimation of the track width. Again, if you have deep dish rims like the Countach, you will be very close by using my method as the centreline of the wheel would be pretty darn close to the face of the wheel hub. On other cars the centreline of the wheel is a better method due to the wheel hub face being further out inside the rim.

    There are lots of sites explaining how it all works if you search the web using "measuring track width".

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers
