D2 max track width w/ 2S blade

Does anyone know the maximum width of track pads for a D2 5U with a 2S blade? I found a few 16 inch pads and am wondering if they would work. I know that a D2 without the blade could fit very wide tracks but I am not sure about the clearance required for a blade. By the looks of it, I would say they would fit, but I want to be sure. If anyone has experience with this I would appreciate your input. 
Thanks

To echo what Neil said, yes 16” pads are the widest that can be used with both the 2S straight and 2A angle blades for the 5U. I would even say that the 16’s are my preferred track pad width for all-around D2 dozing.

Thank you for the replies. Unfortunately there were only enough of these pads for one side so I guess I'll be over on the For Sale section looking for a matching set.
Also, Squatch, just wanted to say I love your videos. They've helped me tremendously.
