yes but 85 is not actually a height, its a percent of a width. so 85% of 255mm=216.75mm or 75% of 265mm (198.75mm) that ken suggested, though it needs to be more like a 275 or 285. Really closest to that size without being that exact size is 285/75/16 which is 32.8" where 255/85/16 is 33.1"
There will be minor variance between brands/styles anyway, so regardless if you get a different tire the size can vary somewhat.
if you want 255/85/16 its fine but it is a bit more limited in selection than say a 285/75/16 which will be close in overall diameter and 30mm wider.
Either way is fine but I just wanted to point out, Ken is on the right track and I think many people don't understand metric tire sizes fully. I think they are quite dumb personally, i mean really, percentages?
