1993 Caprice Wagon rear brakes/tires/rims

I need new rear wheel cylinders, and my drums are either 11" or 9", and I don't know what to measure to call out the correct cylinder. Which do I measure - ID or OD??

Also, I mounted P235-70-R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As on stock rims on the front, and it seems to fill the wheel wells nicely. I think I want wider ones in the back, since on the Wagon it's 3" wider. I'll be putting old-school Cragar-type rims all around, but I'm not sure how wide. What's the best way to determine desired rim width/tire size?

Your drums would be the 11 inch ... on a wagon

A homemade tool like the one Powerodsmike made works well ...

Make sure that the weight of the car is sitting on the axle when you do that to have it in the correct position.
