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.

Discount Tire - Cooper ATP $123

Discount Tire - Cooper ATP $177

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

99 XJ, black, 4x4, NP231, 8.25 rear. Fully locked.
5.5" long arm lift, 35x12.5x15 Kumo KL71MT

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.
