Question Tire and Wheel Discrepancy

I'm confused! I just became the proud owner of a 1998 Ranger XLT 4x4 in pretty great shape except for the wheels which are way beyond badly rusted. My problem is that the tire size listed on the driver's door label states P235/70R16SL and the rim size is listed as 15x7.0J. The tires are in good shape and are in fact P235/70R16s. I want to get new wheels though and don't believe 15 wheels are what I should get. Can anyone explain the discrepancy between the tire size and the rim size for me? Thanks.
