16" TJ Recommendations

Have a TJ that came with 16" rims with 265/75/16 tires installed. From research I know that 16 isn't the greatest size, but its what I've got. There is a slight vibration at 45-50mph that balancing hasn't been able to solve. I think the tires are shot and looking to replace them. TJ has 2.5" lift installed.

Can I go with a larger/wider tire here? To me the 265 isn't all that wide. They have a spacer installed to get the wheel/rim to line up with the extender flare currently. I don't necessarily want to go with a taller tire as I've read of issues with the auto trans in the 03s. I'm not sure of the backspacing etc as it's an aftermarket American Racing rim.

Thoughts on size to run?
