Fuel Mileage difference 267/70/17 vs 285/70/17 noticable?

Hi guys, I was considering putting 285/70/17 BFG KOs on my hemi. I have a 3.55 rear end. From my understanding its alittle over an inch taller and an inch wider? I live on hilly terrain but I don't normally go on the interstate, so its typically 55 mph country in the hills.

Love them, and may switch to the 305's. These lasted almost 3 full years, using them year around. Didn't notice any difference in gas mileage, but set it at 85 on the highway, so that may be why???
