I'm putting on an OME 1.5 lift with HD springs. I have a set of 16x8 Moabs. What's the best size tire for this set up?

Assuming the 927 springs etc so 2.5 inches of lift
Moabs, 255-70-16s or 265-70-16s
you want something with a wider foot print for that wide of a wheel .
I'm running 265-70-16s on my Moabs with 2.5 inches of lift and 4.10 gearing

????
spacers ? why run spacers ?
Wheels are 5 inched backspacing ( same as stock ) but the extra inch wider sits the tire/ wheel combo out to the edge of the flare.

Completely unnecessary and not recommended with the 16x8 wheels.
