Gas Milliage And Rims, Tires

Hello:
Does any body know if, a change in a rims & tire size can change the gas milliage?
Exmaple mine use 235/70/15 I want to change to 235/75/15.
Or more big what if I change to 20'' rims?
Any change in gas consuption?

Also my truck is a 2001, B3000 this 235/75/15 fit in mine?
Will look ok?

thanks

Well mine is 2wd I'm planning to use for a while original rims 15'' but I want
to buy the 235/75/r15.
Later I will buy new alum. rims 15''
I really dont want to make to much changes cause I use the truck to work, I'm sales man!
