Clincher Conversion

I'm trying to switch out a wheelset with Araya Aero 4 rims and put some clincher rims on it. My big question right now Is what the ERD is on the Aero 4's. I'm hoping to not build them from the ground up and just swap the rims.
Is there any easier way to get that measurement than taking spokes out and straight up measuring it?

But I don't understand what you are trying to do. You want to go from sew-ups to clinchers and re-use the spokes so you are looking for a rim with the same diameter?

Exactly I'm looking for something with the same ERD as the Aero 4's but clincher style. Anybody know about this?

Cursory search revealed nothing about the ERD. If you can accurately measure your spoke length and hub dimensions without removing the rim, you can work backwards and arrive at the ERD with say spocalc. Note, you are significantly restricting your rim choices by specifying that a replacement rim must be the same erd. Spokes are cheap, 50 cents each. It doesn't make sense to do this.
