What tpye of tire shoud we get

We have had our jeep for 6 months now and are loving her very much. We have been taking her off roading. This weekend we blew a tire. So my husband is thinking of getting another tire size. Right now we have 245/75/16 and he is thinking of getting 285/75/16. If he goes with this will he need to get spacers for these. Also right now there is no lift. Eventually we do want to raise it but not to much. Any sugestions for us out there**We have an 07 Unlimited X.***

No matter what tire you get, IMHO, you'd be better off with a Load Range E tire.....they are more resistant to punctures. A larger size tire won't make a difference in blowout resistance.
