A 15" rim/tire should save weight and since the brakes are only about 11" (drums are even smaller) there are no fit issues with using 15" rims like a lot of older Escapes came with stock.
From experience with my FEH, using a heavier but narrower tire (i.e. LT225/75-16) eliminates MPG loss from the additional weight.
