96Y vs 100Y Spec

I currently have PSS 275/35/19 100Y and I'm due for rear tires. I'm taking advantage of a bunch of Amazon gift cards I have so that's where I'm looking to purchase the tires. I noticed a substantial difference in price between the 100Y rated and 96Y rating. Can anyone give any insight to the difference in feel between the 100Y vs the 96Y?

Y= speed rating. 96 vs 100 is the load rating. 96 = 1565lbs/tire , 100 = 1764lbs/tire. our cars should be fine with 96Y, common sense would say that the higher load rating would mean rougher ride quality.

Went with the 96 load rating and it feels just as good.
