20in tires on GM trucks

Does anyone know if the 20 inch tires that GM offers with the Texas Edition package affects gas milage? The posted mpg uses 17 inch tires.

Probably very little if any. It really depends on the tire/wheel weight combination. The 20" wheels might weigh a little more and provide a little more rolling resistance. It also depends on the wheel material (steel vs. aluminum) - Aluminum weighs significantly less than steel.
