Lift kit tires size question

I just picked up a stock 1990 YJ. I want to make it look better with out going nuts.
If I go with 31x10.5, how much lift do I need and what width rims would I need?
Or
If I went to 33x12.5 what would I need, but how much power would the drivetrain loose.

I sometimes go on the beach, but other than that there's not much room for offroading in NJ.

Any pics and suggestions appreciated

I run the 2-1/2" RE lift with 31x10.50x15's on 15x8 rims with 3.75" backspacing on my 94 YJ.

Jp magazine has a chart. You can go to Jpmagazine.com and I found it again. Thats the chart we used for planning. Also measure the actual height of the tire as they dont always measure as marked on the tire. We had a limited budget so we went with a 2" shackle lift = 1" actual lift and run MickeyThompson Baha ATZ 31x10.5 on 15x7 rims. We needed to keep the American Racing alloy rims that came on it SO after alot of cleaning and black paint on the centers they look OK and
everything fits. Good Luck with your project

Here's the link to the chart only because I had a hell of a time finding it, but that could be just me.
