If your plans include a lift, I would get the cheapest ones possible if you really need them. Especially if you are going to do the lift relatively soon. The only reason why I say this, is because I was in your situation. I really needed tires, I bought 4 new tires ( a good set). 4 months later, I lifted the jeep 2" and got another set of tires. I am kicking myself in the ***. Now I have 4 practically new tires sitting in my basement. That's an extra $500 that I could have used for mods or put towards a bigger lift!
