Help with lifts and tires!

Have a 2012 Unlimited Sahara. I have the stock duelers with the 18" wheel. How do I know what size tire that is on there compares in size to say a 31, 33 etc tire? Is it a 30 inch?? If I were to upgrade to a 33" tires what kind of lift should I get? I really don't think I want the 35, as I have young kids that all ready have trouble getting in the jeep! Also, if I go ahead and put the lift on now would it look bad this the tires size that's on there currently?
Thanks!

Question #1 answered here: Tire Size Calculator

Check out what you need for 33"s here:JK Tech Sticky-Will It Rub? and then search for lift opinions in JK Tech

2inch will get youto 33 with 1.5 spacers if articulation is going on. 2.5 will get you to 35 with but you need to move the exhaust back with some spacers for the front drive line to clear and spacers and flat fenders maybe a pinch weld cutting. as you go higher so does the cost and other needs.

Thanks! I feel like 32-33s may be tough with the 18 rims! I currently have a 255/70r18. Can someone tell me how I can get slightly bigger tires on those current rims?
