Tire Selection

I wanted to get some input on tire selection. My truck has the 1.5 add a leaf on the front end. I am at the tail end of these TOYO tires (325/60R18) and need to get some new rubber. I love the look of the tires, but with the width (about 13 inches), they throw mud all over the place and rub when I crank the wheel. I am thinking about going to 275/70R18 which is about 11.5 inches wide, but maintains the height. Anyone running these tires on their OBS?

will the narrower tire make a difference on the mileage? It will be 1.5 inches narrower, which I hope will pull it back in the wheel well enough to keep from flinging muck up the side of my rig.
