Default 265/70R16 vs 245/75R16

Has anyone gone from a 265/70R16 to the narrower 245/75R16 (height is very close to the same just about an inch narrower)? In this case on a first gen Tacoma. Wondering if the narrower width helps with mileage and maybe a bit better on snow. I know, it's crazy to go with smaller tires, but there are rub marks on the frame in the stock configuration so I think the OE 265/70 might be too wide anyway and I would be going with one of the typical mildly aggressive ATs, BFG A/T, Yokohama Geolander, Goodyear Duratrac, etc. so it would be potentially worse.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
