Need tire sizing help

So I bought my 98 TJ 4.0 with the current setup, 2" lift running 33 10.50x15 BFGs on Canyon rims. I like it just fine but don't have a whole lot of time on it. It's time for new tires and I'm weighing my options, stay with the current setup or save a little money and go to a 32 11.50. I guess you want to know that this IS my DD and I do do the occasional, monthly, off road excursion. Road ride, off road capability, and mileage are all priorities to me, and in that order. Secondly, which tires should I be looking at? Don't really want to spend Goodyear prices so I'm thinking stay with BFG or maybe go with Falken. Thoughts? Thanks!

Well there are BFG A/T's in your current size. That's the only one I can think of that is currently available in a 33x10.5. If you go to a 32x11.5 you're gonna need spacers or new wheels, in which case I'd go to a 33x12.5, and call it good. There are tons of them to choose from. Selection of 32's is fairly limited as well. Of course a wider tire will be heavier and cost you a few mpgs.
