Google says and is kinda on dot
Low Profile Tyres - Performance Characteristics
Compared to conventional passenger car tyres, low profile car tyres have greater width ratio to cope with the demands of higher performance vehicles.
The key performance advantages are:
* Improved handling and grip
* More traction and braking power
* Increased road noise
* A harsher ride
* Less resistance to aquaplaning due to the amount of rubber on the road
