Tube health wise if you must stray from the ideal impeadance its better to go lower than higher in regards to speaker load, as a mismatch of having say a 16 ohm driver on the 8 ohm tap will raise the liklyhood of having the B+ arc in the tube or tube socket and the higher in B+ you run the tube up near to design spec, the greater the risk!
Odly enough, the tubes will last longer driving into the higher speaker load as the can not output the same wattage, which also means a tube that wants a 6k load run down to 3k due to speaker load will have a as long a life span than run at 6k.
