tire size question?

I just bought a 98 tj with a 3 inch rusty lift. It has cheap 32 inch tires on it right now. Was going to get some new tires and wheels and was debating between 33"s or 32"s. The jeep is my third vehicle not my everyday driver and will go off road a few times a year. You guys think i should go with the bigger tires or stay with 32's so i have some flex room? Rustys said it fits up to a 33 inch tire with that lift.

With 3" of lift you should be able to fit 33s, I would do that and if you think you need more room just add a 1" BL
