Nokian Rotiva AT 245/75r17 + OME full suspension kit

First of all warm greets for everyone, from Slovakia, European Union.

I'm a fresh, happy owner of XK Commander 07 Limited, with the diesel engine.

I want to add more offroad capability, without compromising the ride comfort onroad. All i need is a little advice on how to do it JUST RIGHT.

I'm studying the web for 3 days now and from my point of perspective the best choise could be:

Old Man Emu full medium suspension lift kit
Nokian Rotiva 245/75r17 tyres on OEM wheels

Is the OME kit stiffer then the factory suspension?? What does it mean? Because they claim on their web site that the ride will be more comfortable. I dont want a stiffer feel throught the speed bumpers and the terrain. How much lift it really does?? Because ARB claim it does only 1,25".

Is the size of the tyres the best for this configuration?? Or should i use wheel spacers?? The rubber in this size comes only in LT245/75 R 16 120/116 S?? Is it too stiff??? Is this the E rating everyone is talking about??

Thx guys, specially those with personal experience...

I been seeking the same answer on the OME suspension. I keep hearing it is better but still not sure how it compares to the feel of the stock or 2" lift block setup.
