07' 17" wheels - Rear Fender to ground measurement?

OE ride height with 235/55/17 tires. Just want to see if the rear springs on 07 si have settled and could be replaced when i replace the dampers. Thanks

The best way to measure is from the fender edge to the center of the wheel. This takes the tire out of the measurement. Tires are very variable based on a number of factors that can impact ride height. I'll measure my 07 X3 tomorrow, if I can find my tape measure, and give you my fender to wheel center distance.
