In case you wanted the lug pattern in metric, since some of the wheel vendors list the info. in metric units (25.4 millimeters = 1 inch), the lug pattern is 6 on 127 mm.
I recall a thread about dealing with the spare tire issue (lack of), that someone had used a 17" wheel for a Trailblazer and selected a tire with appropriate sidewall height to result in between a 28" and 29" tire O.D. I could see brake caliper clearance issues with a 16" wheel, but maybe not so with 17", and certainly not with the 18", since some folks are running 18" Boyd custom wheels on the front. If that supposed 18" Trailblazer wheel didn't fit, then it couldn't have had a 6 on 5" lug pattern, because the 18" wheel diameter is not an issue.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, I believe one of the fanatics got a 17" wheel from the Chevy Trailblazer to fit, and effectively function as a spare, since there was the concern of not having one.
Try doing a search.
That was probably me. I made the 16" Trailblazer spare fit by using a spacer and doing some minor grinding on the cooling fins on the front calipers. The rear fits fine. The reason I wanted the 16" rim was that I wanted to be able to collapse the tire to a minimum size in order to mount it under the bed of the truck.
Here's a pointer to the entire sordid description. At the time, I was kind of frustrated with all the work required, but now that it's been mounted for several months, it all seems minor. I can enjoy my SSR a little more knowing that I can fix a flat if needed and not be dependent on Chevrolet roadside service efficiency.

I just made a spare tire for my SSR and I ended up with a chrome wheel from American Racing that would fit the Trail Blazer 6 on 5 pattern. You may want to check your local tire stores that do wheel up grades. That is where I had to go to get a wheel. Locally we made all sorts of calls and no one had a wheel that would work in stock.
By going to the local tire shop, you maybe lucky and find a 6 on 5 wheel that has been damaged in shipping with a blemish, but still is road worthy, and save a couple of bucks on the prices of the wheel.
