Tire size opinion thread. Have questions

I have an 01 jeep cherokee sport with 3 inch rough country suspension lift. Right now I have 30x9.50 tires and was looking at getting the super swamper 32x9.50 tires. I do quite a bit of mudding and basic trail off-roading with very light rock areas. I was wondering if these would fit with room to flex at all. I'm planning on trimming the fenders if I get these. If anyone has these on their rig I would love to see exactly how they look too. Or if you have any other tire size recommendation please tell!

If you're planning on trimming then I don't really understand what your question is.

If you're trimming anyway run wider 33s or 35s. Who cares about up travel in mud? Bigger, wider tires are whats important.

Well I was just curious how much room I would have between the tire and top of wheel well. In other words can I still flex?

That's going to depend on the amount you are willing to trim. More trimming =more flex.
