Tire Differences / Price?

I'm looking for some new tires for my 2000 TJ and I've narrowed it down to these but I dont understand the difference in price for the same tire. If anyone can help explain why one would be better than another let me know. I dont do any off road but I would like tires that look somewhat aggressive.

The more expensive ones have a heavier load rating. More for light trucks.

Actually the first one is for light trucks and SUVs. The second one is for 1-ton pickups. The LT-E model has heavier construction and deeper tread. The P model gets better fuel economy. I avoid E rated tires like the plague.

E rated tires will ride a bit rougher on the highwaybut they are nice on the trail.

After doing a little more investigation I think I'm going the Cooper AT3 P rating. I do mainly highway driving with no offroad.

A bit rougher? You have a gift for understatement.

BTW - OP, there are ratings between P and E.

C and D are in between.

I prefer C because tough enough, but still ride decent enough and get decent enough gas mileage.

P will ride the softest, most comfortable, and get best gas mileage, but aren't quite as capable off road as a C because C are tougher and have deeper tread for more traction.

However, I think a P would be fine for you. P or C would be fine for you.

Avoid D and E like the plague, IMO.
