Max tire and lift size

I just bought a 89 wrangler yj 2.5L. I was wonder what is the biggest size tires and lift That I could install? I would like to have decent highway driving as well as off road. I was thinking maybe 31" to 33" tires with 4" lift? Thx for the input.

I have a 6in lift with 33in tires and its great for off road and around town but the highway is out of the question. My top speed is about 60mph on a windless day.

I'm going with 37s on my 2.5 YJ (not stock axles) with about 2-3 inches of lift over factory ride height.
