My old tires/wheels

I'm about to purchase some new wheels (16x8 Unique 252) and ties 315/65/16 BFG M/T KM2. I'm getting a 4" lift and I was told it is not safe to drive with tires that are too small on a lift because of the possibilty of rolling.

Now I like the idea of keeping A/T tires for regular driving but I could keep my 17" factory wheels and only get new tires. My first questions are, Is it a waste for me to buy A/T tires if i'm getting the KM2's? Do the KM2's ride nicely on the road? Is it hard to change tires on the same wheel or should I keep two seperate wheels with two seperate tires?

Also if I do get rid of the tires and wheels do people usually sell them on ebay and for how much? I only saw 18" wheels on there. They have less than 1900 miles on them.
