I'm running 265/70R16's on mine, with the 2" BDS suspension lift. They clear the upper ball but not by a lot, and I think the tread may rub on the framerail when at 100% turn (not at rest, but if you help push it that last 5 degrees). I'll try to get some pictures up before long...

I was running 265-70-16 on my 03 LT (no lift) with no problems, but I backed down to 255-70-16 to gain back a couple hundred rpm at 55. Engine was lugging too much for my taste, and since I don't tow heavy anymore, this was a wise choice for me. When towing, I would run in 3, so the lower rpm was good.

its the biggest you can possibly fit, without spacers and a lift.

Look in the pic/spec thread thats stickied, you can see my balljoint picture there.

265/70/16 will fit!!! I repeat... They will fit without wheel spacers... On my brother's trailblazer we installed electra ironman 265/70/16 and a suspension maxx 2" lift . With out any type of wheel spacer and it did clear the ball joint. We are now selling these wheels and tires in the classified section here on trailvoy. We mounted them up to see if they cleared the ball joint and they did... However , our trailblazers came with factory 17"s which means bigger brake calipers. So the 16" wheels we purchased did not clear the caliper ... But as for the tire. It is all good.

how did you mount them up, and know that they fit, if the wheels don't fit on your truck.

I personally know they fit, but, there is no way you could if the wheels did not fit over the calipers.

Check in the trailvoy classified ads.... I'm selling a brand new set of mb motoring wheels and 265/70/16 all terrain tires. Both are brand new and priced to sale... My brother bought these but didn't know that if his trailblazer came with 17's from the factory , then you can't down size to a 16" wheel... So his lose is your gain.
