I have a stock 98' Eddie Bauer with the air ride suspension, if that makes a difference in this case.

After searching the forums for several hours I still do not have an answer on the max size for a 16X7 rim.

I am looking for the max tire size I can run WITH tire chains installed and zero rubbing issues from rubber or chain. Please reply back if you can, and update your sticky on max tire sizes to include the EB!!!!!!!!!!!!

And yes I already know that the factory tire size is 265/70/16.
