7.50-16 LT Tires... What size is that in metric?

My new trailer has dry rotted 7.50-16 tires on it, I'm buying new tires and need to know what that works out to in metric size. Is it 235/80/16?

Two sites i found showed 235-85-16 but they were a G rate tire 109psi. But a E well work.
I run a 245-65-16 E's on my trailer but i like to have my trailer tire the same size as my truck.

Yep, the front (left) is a 7.5-16 the back is a 235/85/R16. The radials' sidewalls bulge more than the bias, but they run a good bit cooler.
