Fuel Efficiency

My friend has found a pretty good deal on a set of OZ ultraleggeras 16 x 7 and he currently has 15 inch steelies. He was curious if the increase in contact patch of the tire going from 185 - 205 will offset the increase mpg factor of having lightweight wheels of approx 5lbs lighter?

Thanks for your comments

Edit: He has a 05 4 door focus
