245/75r17 ride quality

I am looking at 245/75r17 for my next tire size. Looks like almost all of the tires in this size are a 'E' load rating. Was wondering what people who have that size think of the ride quality of this thicker/stiffer tire. I won't be doing any hard core off roading.

That will make yours look more aggressive. You can play with tire pressure for ride quality.

Thanks, I was hoping it wouldn't effect the ride much. It's my wife's Jeep and took me little while to convince her to let me order the lift and I don't want to listen to her complain if it rides like a HD truck because of the tires.
