Wheels: Smaller rims, taller sidewalls?

Good day! I'm looking for new tires as my old 155/65/r14 expire (cracks started appearing on the sidewall, yikes!). I've been reading a lot of the posts here and I've been convinced that downsizing rims (but equipping taller sidewalls to match the stock size) will be beneficial in increasing my fuel economy.

So I'm planning to go from Goodyear GT3 155/65/r14 to Michelin XM2 155/80/r13. Would this be a sensible setup? I'm looking to lose a few pounds each wheel so it would be easier on the car to rotate the wheel from a stop. Anyone mind sharing some valuable input?
