How do I measure axle widths?

I am wanting to do an SAS on my truck and know the basics of what I need but am not too sure on how to measure axle widths. I see the WMS to WMS reference all the time, what does this mean?

WMS=wheel mounting surface. the flat area around the wheel studs.

Measure your stock WMS-WMS, then decide decide if you want to your new measurement to be the same. If not how much wider, then look at what options you have to get where you want to be.
