Certainly changing from 8ply rated light truck construction AT tyre to a HT tread pattern passenger construction tyre will result is some fuel saving, a quieter and more comfortable ride. But you will lose off road traction and durability.

I have a NL Escape it still had the 15 inch OEM rims fitted with Cooper 265 x 75 15 A/T3 tyres, kms unknown.
My NL was a pig to drive with this comb given it still has a 235 70 15 as a spare which looks like a better fit, it just wandered all over the road.I always thought the tyres were too big for the rims.
So i found some 16 inch NL Exceed rims and on Saturday i got the 265 x 16 70 697s 117 from Bob Jane @$235 ea with $100 cash back, $840
Talk about chalk and cheese on the Bitumen its a different car.I got these as mainly a Hwy/fire trail tyre to tow my Jayco Outback around with.I do intend to go off grid with the camper but not as extreme as having to put the Paj into Low range with the Jayco in tow.
My property backs onto the Wombat Forest in the Macedon Ranges.
So i will be in the market for a set of aggressive Mud Terrains in the next couple of months to go low ranging with just the Paj.Not sure if to use the 15 inch Escape rims or get some steel rims.

I think you have a few of the specifications mixed up .

1. 265/75R15 is not a common tyre size so dio you have 265/70R15?

2. 235/70R15 is not a common tyre size so do you have 235/75R15?

You also need to consider the rim offset because changing diameter of tyres and or the rim offset can have a significant effect on the handling of the vehicle because it changes the scrub radius and the self aligning torque of the front suspension.
