Yes. Torque will decrease considerably. However, these cars are rarely taken offroad.

also the lower profile of the tyre will damage the el cheapo looking alloys big time during an OTR.

That Fortuner looks bad and cheap with those wheels, bad choice for a nice looking machine.

Rotate the wheels and see if the problem persists.

You are forcing me to post better pics of my ride. 100% Credit goes to Nikhil for suggesting and sourcing the wheels, I just paid the money that's it.

Welcome to TBHP.

I think this is first santro I have seen with 15 inchers and 45 profile.
Howaz the ride quality, pretty harsh/stiff, I suppose!!!

BTW, good design on wheels, goes perfectly well with the car.
