Typically, the way you measure ride height to be more accurate is:

1) Measure from fender lip to bottom of wheel.
2) Subtract 1/2 of wheel diameter.
3) Result is "ride height" from axle center. Typically rear dimension is smaller.

The reasons for this is its hard to measure accdurately to the top of the tire, and secondly, it take the tire diameter out of the equation.
