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.
Your are correct greg. I used the finger width method so I guess the word accurate is a little relative but I can say it beats the picture guess.
Car had 19"s BTW.
