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

Disadvantages are:

* Increased road noise
* A harsher ride
* Less resistance to aquaplaning due to the amount of rubber on the road
