That's how I was told to measure lift. So, some of it is tires, but it is all lift.

Mike
The normal way is to measure how far the center of the wheel or hub moves after a lift. It can be measured to a fender or body line.

Unless you change wheels/tires the center of the wheel won't show any lift.

True, if you're measuring to the ground.
