Whats the difference between P225/70R16 and P225/75R16 tires?

I need to get new tires for my 01 Wrangler.

I found a nice used set of P225/75R16 tires.
Also found a new set of P225/70R16 tires.

Both are relatively the same price but whats the difference between the two? will either one fit my jeep?

225/75R16 is about an inch larger in diameter than 225/70R16 (29.3" vs 28.4").

Both of those are midget sizes, so at least do the 75 height.

'92 YJ - heavily modded
'96 ZJ - heavily modded
'05 KJ CRD Limited - 370 lb./ft. from a 4-cylinder and trail ready. Pure awesomeness.
'11 Mango Tango JKU Sport - Mods
'12 Dozer JKU Sport S - 6-speed - ACE rock rails - Max Tow package - Daystar spacers - 33x12.50 Duratracs

Here's a great tool for you:
http://tire-size-conversion.com/tire-size-converter/

If you have a size like P225/75R16, that means:
P = Passenger, aka lighter load than LT (light truck)
225 = width of the tire in mm
70 = height of the tire is 70% of the width (75% of 225mm)
R16 = fits a 16" rim

So for those two tires, they both have the same width, but the 75 is going to be slightly taller than the 70.
