    They are pronounced the same as -ai such as ใคร (krai), ได้ (dai).
    I don't think we have any rule for using ใ- and ไ-.
    you have to remember which word we use ใ- and which word we use ไ-.

    I realize something from the old time that I used to speak out loud when I was in a classroom.

    ผู้ใหญ่หาผ้าใหม่ ให้สะใภ้ใช้คล้องคอ
    ใฝ่ใจเอาใส่ห่อ มิหลงใหลใครขอดู
    จะใคร่ลงเรือใบ ดูน้ำใสและปลาปู
    สิ่งใดอยู่ในตู้ มิใช่อยู่ใต้ตั่งเตียง
    บ้าใบ้ถือใยบัว หูตามัวมาใกล้เคียง
    เล่าท่องอย่าละเลี่ยง ยี่สิบม้วนจำจงดี

    This is all about ใ-. When I was young, my teacher told me to memorize all these sentences. :D
