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.
