Default How do I properly measure for rim width?

argh, purchased a bike with excels already installed. Lurking around for tires and compatibilities. What are the correct given points to properly measure.
17" portion I got, width in front appx 4" outside, rear appx 5" outside.
Does this mean 3.5" FR and 4.5" rear?

Rim width is measured from the inside of the rims, where the bead sits.
