The result can actually be RPMs that are too low, which means going heavier on the gas pedal to try to maintain power. Essentially, you start lugging the engine, which results in the need to give it more gas to get the same acceleration, especially once you get to the higher gears where there's not a lot of power at all.
Yeah if you go up from a 29" tire to let's say a 37" then yes. But going from a 29 to a 31 or even a 33 isn't as noticeable. (Did this on my old 350 powered Yukon)
