On 18's, and measuring from the bottom of the rim to the top of the wheel well, when under a "normal load" (weight in the front seats, center rear and trunk) then the following are the measurements for the front:
Standard: 24.29 inches
Sport: 23.71 inches
XI / rough road: 24.96 inches
M3: 23.82 inches

Size of rim shouldn't matter since the overall diameter is very close (or better be). Measure the way he said though.

It does matter for rim size. The bentley has these values listed. I'll update the post when I'm home.

Oops you're right. I read his post wrong. I thought he said from the ground up to the wheel well.
