Not sure where this came from but I have one 10 inch factory style wheel. Was the rim used on another import?

I think that's actually the rear shp measurement. I remember when I got mine polished for some reason comparing them to some corvette rims they had laying out and 10" stuck in my memory. It was a long time ago, though

I have seen folks make this same mistake for years. We had a guy a few years back swearing he had the only set of SHP wheels in the world that weren't marked with SHP stampings. Lol. Look at the back of the spokes. One should say 16x9 on it.

Wheel rims are measured from the INSIDE of the lip, side to side. The measurement is what the tires ACTUALLY touch / mount to. Actual rim width is always 1 inch larger on the outside. There is an extra half inch per side. It the reason 0 offset wheels backspacing is half inch off. Hope this helps.
The extra width shouldn't affect anything since the tire width sidewall to sidewall is greater......except when you stretch narrow tires.
