The most likely reason is that vrooooom's Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 tyres are out-and-out performance tyres and probably have stiffer sidewalls than the Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD2 which BP has (which might be more biased towards comfort). So one can expect less sidewall flex in vroooom's case for the same tyre pressures even if the alloy widths are the same.

I would still say its the mudflaps. I had similar mudflaps which were screwed on to the inside of the wheel arches and they used to touch the tyre at a particular point when turning.
Replaced the mud flaps with OE and they no longer touch. The OE ones are screwed on to the outer edge of the wheel arch.

Wanted to say something about the tyres. Inspite of it being a performance tyre, it seems it has something to add to the comfort as well. Somehow now I dont feel each every humps or scraped out roads. I used to do that before. But yes, previously I had 185/60/R13. Those were pretty low. Truly speaking its hard to comment on tyres unless and until you switch from one tyre to another with similar profile, and keep everything else constant.
