Bumping the minimum bitrate only makes sense if you don't trust the VBR algorithm. But in that case it would make more sense to use ABR with a high average bitrate (keeping minimum at 32 as well, it'll only get used for digital silence anyway) or indeed CBR 320 (alt-preset insane).

Otoh Lame's VBR modes are very well tested so if size does matter the recommendation would be to set minimum bitrate back to 32 and use VBR Quality (0-2 in your case I suppose).
