Paul, IMO, given your situation, any of the sawn lumber will be more than suitable for what you're attempting to accomplish which, if I recall, is to just beef up the joists to push them comfortably past L360 for your ceramic tiles.

Since you're not shooting for a particular L number well fastened 2X6's will accomplish your goal, too, I bet. But since you're going through the trouble, and space isn't an issue, use the 2X8's.
