With 8 inches of lift, I'd go with a larger tire. 37's at least.

Yep, I agree. 37" tires should look great with that setup. You could go 35s too. 37s would look better!

I'd stay far away from aftermarket torsion bar keys. All they do is allow you to crank way, way too much preload onto your torsion bars which will increase ball joint and CV joint angles to the point they wear quickly. You will also destroy your ride quality with too much preload.
