I believe it's an MU8516.
MT9016 is a 130mm tire
MU8516 is a 140mm tire
You'll get about 30% more mileage out of an MU then an MT.
Lets do the math:
= 130/90-16 (metric version)
130mm / 90% sidewall aspect x 16" diameter rim.
130mm/117mm x 406.4mm
117mm sidewall + 406.4mm + 117mm = 640.4 Total height, or 25.21" tall
140mm / 85% sidewall aspect x 16" diameter rim.
140mm / 119mm x 640.4mm
119mm + 406.4mm + 119mm = 878.4mm or 644.4mm or 25.37" total height
