Thumbs down Sahara OEM tire straight-swap advice please!

We're expecting a new JK Unlimited Sahara soon. Use is 90 percent highway, 10 percent fire trails, cow tracks. Thinking about swapping the stock Bridgestone Dueler 255/70R18s straight-up for Cooper Discoverer STT LT 275/70R18s. They look better, they're better off-road and not too whiny on-road, and people seem to really love 'em. Does anybody know if the fatter tire will require spacers and/or a lift? Also, will this mess up the speedo? Any thoughts about the Cooper tire? Thanks!
