It is not that I don't like it, but all the fundi's tell me that 225/85 R16 is the more logical choice.

235/85R16 is the 'standard' size for your 110 & probably easiest to find locally for you.

Depends on the terrain you drive on but 265/75R16 is the same rolling circumference but will give the tyre a larger footprint for driving on soft ground or sand etc.

If you find that the size you have works for you then stick with it.

A few of the most used options

235/85/16 = diameter 31.7 inch, width 9.3 inch
265/75/16 = diameter 31.6 inch, width 10.4 inch
285/75/16 = diameter 32.8 inch, width 11.2 inch
255/85/16 = diameter 33.1 inch width 10 inch

https://tiresize.com/comparison/ allows you to compare two tyre options at a time
