I have the same tire on my stock YJ with stock rims as well. Since I have no lift I would rub for days with any real flex. 2.5 inches would probably tuck the 31s nicely. I would ask why you NEED bigger tires? Of course it's your money and saying you have 33s is fun, but if they will rub then why? I'd keep the tires and get some soft 8s (google em).

If you just need new tires b/c the BFGs are worn, i would suggest staying 31.

I would think you could go 32.11.5x15 with that lift and not rub, with that size you could still use the factory rims if you wanted, may need to put a washer behind the steering stop.

I have 33-12.5-15 and the same lift with 1'' body lift. I do not get rubbing. you could also add a small shackle lift if needed.
