KT98ss in 3betpot - how do you value bet your range here?

Blinds: $0.25/$0.50 (6 Players) BB: $58.61
UTG: $79.48
MP: $24.20
CO: $48.07
BN: $55.45 (Hero)
SB: $138.56
only about 40 hands on villain at the time of playing, but he was on the loose/aggressive donkey side with about 65/35/14
Preflop ($0.75) Hero is BN with T 8 K 9
3 folds, Hero raises to $1.75, SB raises to $5.75, BB folds, Hero calls $4.00
Flop ($12.00) 8 8 7
SB bets $11.40, Hero raises to $45.60

These spots come up so often for me and im not sure if im playing them correctly. Just want to lay out my thoughts and here, how other people play this spot.

OTF: After analyzing i really dont like that im raising here and definitly not happy about the sizing. Normally i think i should just call here, because my hand is extremly strong and needs almost no protection in a 3betpot. But in my experience when people bet pot or close to it in a 3betpot, they are not folding. So in hindsight i think calling or makes most sense, especially against a guy like this who has a wider 3betting range. If i elect to raise i think maximum 24$ is a good sizing. Its effectivly the same, but he can talk himself into a call, bc its such a good price and then he may feel commited OTT.

But lets say i have a hand like KQJ8 without 2 BDFD. Would you be more inclined to raise here, because your hand doenst play as good on turns and rivers? I think im still calling, bc it has 9 outs to a fullhouse.

But lets say we have A823ds(no BDFD). I think its reasonably to open on a button, but close to calling a 3bet. I think raising here makes much more sense as it plays way worse on turns and rivers.

What do you think? Just wanted to strike up a discussion and see other peoples viewpoints.
