Need Some Advice - 2.25" OME Lift

I have a 2006 Commander w/Hemi, and I am looking to purchase a lift kit for the first time. From what I have read from this site and researched, it appears the OME 2.25" suspension lift is the way to go. Should I do the HD? I would also like to install the biggest tires possible without rubbing. Is this 265/70/17's? Do I need wheel spacers also? I am looking for an aggressive looking tire with good road performance. Some offroading, but a lot of road travel. I have learned a lot from reading the forums on this website. Just looking for some advice from the experts. Thanks.

I would recommend the OME HD kit. 265/70's will fit but you might have to bend over the pinch weld depending on the brand of tire (AT vs. MT). Spacers or new wheels will be required

Yes you will need spacers I you use the stock rims with that tire size. You'll want 1.25-1.5 in spacers to offset the tire size you want
