OEM wheel question

Currently I have Canyon wheels (thats what I'm bealive),I'm trying to find the exactly wheel size because I'm planning to get some MT 31's,and so far here in the Forum people says that Canyon are 15X8,wich I agree since my tires are 30-9.5 r15,but my build sheet says 16x7 and at one Jeep /Chrysler dealer web page shows a pic of my wheels as 16X7 ?????????????? whats going on? what Im missing?There is 16" canyon? past owner might change wheel size?
I know for a fact that I have a 15" wheel because tire size wont be wrong.
Im just want to be shure that I will be able to fit some 31 x 10.5 on it.
PLEASE someone help me to understand whats going on
Dealer pic they describe the # 5(Canyon for my understanding) as 16 x7

Your wheels look identical to mine. Mine are 15x8. I also have 31/10:50/15 mounted on my "canyons" . Jeep did make the same wheel in a 7", they came on cherokee's.....but to the best of my knowlege never a 16".

Look on your tire, it will give the wheel diameter... like 31x10.50x15.
When you have a choice, buy American.

Those should be a 15x8. The jeep ZJ,Older body Grand Cherokee, used a wheel that looks almost identical, except it isn't dished back near as far. You can tell by looking that yours are the canyons. I agree with Jerry, the easiet thing to do it look at your tire size, but I would almost guarantee those are 15x8's!!
Here is the ZJ version:

Yeah I run 30/9.5 R15 Tire size wont be wrong. I'm just confused for the build up sheet and that pic of the dealership.

Canyon wheels...

Guys, how can you visually tell the difference between the canyon wheels from the wrangler and the grand cherokee?
