Very rough approximate conversions. I know you Dean (like I) are a lot more familiar with good ol' standard dimensions on 15" rims...

265/70R16 = 31 x 10.5 (tread width ~8.5")
245/75R16 = 31 x 9.5 (tread width ~7.5")
235/85R16 = 32 x 9.25 (tread width ~7.75")

And our 20/22R, G52/W56, 4.10 favorite (which is just about as uncommon in 16" as 15" unfortunately):

235/75R16 = 30 x 9.5

I hopefully won't have to do anything until next month. Discount went ahead and rotated and balanced my current tires but the tread depth is between 4/32" and 5/32" on all four, so we're talking a matter of a few thousand miles.
