Best SIZE tires for my Jeep

Is this enough info to tell me what size tires would work best for off roading?

Axle ratio 4.11:1

Transfer-case model NV241 Rock-Trac 4.0:1

So I am assuming that means you have a Rubicon. If there is no suspension lift, the biggest you can go is 31x10.50... essentially the inch equivalent to the metric size tires your Rubicon came with.

I have a 2 inch lift and 32's on it now. I was wanting to know what size would it do the best with. Even if I have to change the lift

The biggest size I would even think about for 4.10 gearing is 33" but I'd stick with 32" tires for two reasons... 1) Your 2" lift is not tall enough for 33" tires (really) and 2) 4.10 is a very marginal ratio for 33" tires.

Not with your 4.10 ratio and especially not with only a 2" suspension lift. To go with 35" tires you'd want to regear to 4.88 (5.38 with the automatic transmission) and at least a 4" suspension lift together with aftermarket wheels. 35x12.50 tires are too wide for the factory wheels because of the excessive amount of backspacing they have.
