Stock with 3.21 gears. 33x12.5x15 or 285/75r16

Hey guys,

Have a stock JKU that I finally want to upgrade the wheels and tires on. Been waiting for a sale at DTD and they have one now for Presidents Day.

Always planned on getting MB TKO or Level 8 Trackers in 15" with 33x12.50x15 Duratracs. But they are showing out of stock on the MB TKO (which I prefer)

The DTD guy mentioned he can offer me a 16" wheel and tire combo with same price. It would be the Level 8 Strike 5 wheels in 16" with 285/75r16 Duratracs. I like the look of this wheel a bit better, but I am concerned with 2 things:

a) E rating tire. Will the ride be overly harsh on a JKU? Is it worth it to stay with C rating?

b) weight. I looked up weight of both combos on DTD. 15" package is 73 lbs total and 16" package is 77 lbs total. Is that a big enough difference to stick with the 15" Or will it be even noticeable at all?

I also like the 12.5 width on the 15"
