Need help from rim expert.. with pics

I bought these rims used. I was told they were 17x9. Am I measuring wrong? I hooked the tape on the back of the rim and measured to the front. It looks like 17x10 to me, the lip of the rim wouldn't add 1/2 in each lip would it?

Cliffy that is normal. A 17 x 9 rim is 9 inches from inside bead to inside bead. from outside of rim to outside of rim....it adds another ~1" (or 1/2 per side).

@SilvFx Ahh, Thank you. I've never actually measured a rim with or without the tire mounted.
