Hey guys, here's a noob question- would 245/75 tires put more strain on my engine and trannie than 245/70s considering I have a 3.7L V6? Will both sizes add more strain?

I have my mind set on the GY Wranglers Silent Armor but I've been debating on the size for a long time. I know a 245/75 will not fit in the space where my spare currently sits so that's one thing I've considered but man I really like how the 75s look. I know I would be happy with the 70s but I don't want to later think I should've gotten the 75s instead. What do you guys think about the tire size on a V6 XK? Is anybody running 245/75s on their V6 XK? Oh and this Jeep is for work and play so it's also my daily driver.

Thanks!

Does it sound/feel like it's heavier now?
No, not at all. The only difference I feel is just from it being a different sidewall and rating. Changing tires also changes the spring rate which affects the ride and handling a little bit but each brand and style tire is going to be different.
