Bumping Up Tire Size for New Jeep Owner

To begin, I am a single female & really like my Jeep. I also want my sons to enjoy driving it when home from school; but they rarely do opting to drive their trucks. It's time for new tires, as I currently have factory installed tires on the 2008 2door 4x4 Wrangler. Do you have a suggestion regarding increasing to larger sized tire? Currently have P225/75R16. I'm not ready for a lift kit. I like a rugged tire, maybe Goodyear SilentArmor. Any recommendations?

I went up to 33s on my stock wrangler prior to adding the lift. You lose some turning radius though.

Silent Armour

Have new Silent Armour. Kept a 16, but went from 225 to 255. Much better ride and appearance. Thanks for the reply.
