2.5" lift, but what tires?

My '89 YJ I picked up has a 2.5" lift on it, but is still running some 235/75s. I'm looking to pick up some new used tires for it and am wondering what the max I can fit on there is. Right now it has the stock steel 5 spoke wheels and I would like to keep those if I can. I may be able to get a set of the aluminum ecco wheels from a TJ if they would help. Anyways, can I fit 32x11.50s on the stock wheels with little to no rubbing or am I limited to 31s? Can I do the 32s with the ecco wheels? Thanks guys

I run a 2.5" lift and 31's on my YJ. Depending on the situation, I can still manage to get a little fender flare rub depending how she's flexing. Really going to depend if it's a mall rat or trail rig. The 31's are safe---my 2 cents.

Thats kind of what I figured, but ofcourse was really hoping for some 32s. I"ll just keep watch for a decent set of used 31s to show up for sale somewhere. Keep me in mind if you're close to north east PA. Thanks.
