Thumbs up Help Picking Tires

Ok I finally got my lift installed (looks great by they way) I also found my 16" rims be ordering soon (Black Rock Series 950 Lobo Steel Wheel in Matte Black)the tires im looking at are either 225/70/16 or 235/70/16 B F Goodrich T/A KO All Terrain 104S im leaning toward the 235(not sure if more mods need done due to being almost 2 inches bigger) cause it gives me little more height I live in deep snow areas (Moving to Alaska near Ft. Wainwright near boarder of Canada) which one do u all think would be best hope to hear yawls opinion on this
225 are

Sidewall Depth: 157.5mm (6.2 inches)
Total Diameter: 721.4mm (28.4 inches)
Rolling Circumference*: 2175.69mm (85.66 inches)

What is the back spacing on those wheels. If it is around 4" you shouldn't need to run spacers.

I have a friend I offroad with, he has a 2010 Patriot FDI with a lift and has 235/70/16 BFG AT's he is also running 1.25" spacers, I can't remember if he has rub or not.

I would go with the 235/70/16 otherwise your jeep will look a bit funny lifted, with not large enough tires.
