Skewers are sold based on the over-locknut width (or dropout width) of the hub they fit ie. 126mm, 130mm, 135mm, etc. They're actually longer than that to account for the thickness of the dropouts. There's usually latitude to go 5 or o millimeters, so the same 135mm skewer may be used on both 135 and 130mm hubs, except some may stick out past the end of the nut.
