I'm going with weight and diameter.

Diameter will alter the calculation for MPG. OP really hasn't said much about the new tires/wheels so I can't offer much in the way of how much error.
Thought I'd made a thread discussing tire diameter errors, but I can't find it.

Rotating weight is always in play, even at sustained speeds. It takes more power to keep it at speed.
