How are wheels measured?

Postby houndlegs » Wed Oct 03, 2012 12:26 pm

Afternoon all
How are wheels measured?
Is it the actual rim diameter,or diameter of tyre?
I'm trying to figure out what size wheels I need to replace some knackered ones on an old bike I'm doing up.
The wheels measure 605mm(just under 2ft) across the rim diameter.
So,are they 24 inch wheels?

Many thanks
