Tire Size Conversion--30/9.5/15 to Metric 16?

Ok, my new 05 Unlimited has 30/9.5/15 tires. Unlike my last 2 Wranglers, this new Jeep is going to stay basically stock.

We live at 7000 ft. in a ski resort. I am going to buy a dedicated set of wheels for studded snow tires. My research has indicated that there is a very poor selection of studded tires for 15 inch wheels. Many more good studded options in 16 inch wheel and in a Metric size tire.

Am I right to think that the closest 16 inch Metric height & width tire to my current 30/9.5/15 tires is the metric size 245/75R/16 ??????

If that is not right, what is the direct equivalent.
