7.50 X 16 tires

I have just bought an old camping trailer and I need to change the tires on it. The tires are 7.50 X 16 and I would like to know what size they are, in standard modern measurements.
I had done a search online and found a couple of times that it is equivalent to 235-85-16, which turns out to be very wrong, this is too wide to fit in the wheelwells...
I understand it means the tire is 7.5" wide (measured how?) and goes on a 16" wheels, but this does not help much! I have measured the tire diameter, and it is 31".
