Question I have a question about how different tire sizes affect gearing?

I'm going to be switching from a 120/90/18 Sedona rear tire to a 120/100/18 Pirelli Scorpion XC Mid Hard. There seems to be a big diff in sizing between the 2 brands, the Pirelli looks substantially wider and taller than the much will that affect my gearing? I'm also going from stock 15/45 gearing to 14/45......I hope the bigger tire doesn't eat up all my gearing change and put me back at stock , that would kinda defeat the whole purpose of the sprocket change.....
Any feedback from you guys who have played with tire sizes would be great
Thanks in advance for any info
