7.5" x 25.4mm per inch = 191mm wide.
tyres are 32" od = approx 810 od.
normally a LT rated tyre like 8, 10 or 12 ply plus.

235/85/16 is a common replacement.
also 32" od (generally 804 to 808 OD) but a bit wider by 45mm.

7.5"x16 were a common size on 5.5" and 6" x 16"dia split rims.

I think 235/85/16 may be limited to 6" wide rims or wider so check your rim size.
Has been a thread discussing this, but not sure of the number :-(.

The tyre conversion won't do the conversion from 7.50/16 to what ever needs to have the height & width measure as well still good for the other stuff though, also the 235/85/16 are for 7" rims standard tyre for the Land Rover Defender on 16x7" rims.
