In comparison to average car tyres, low profile tyres have a lower aspect ratio to help them cope with the demands of higher performance vehicles.
The key performance advantages over normal profile tyres are:
- Improved handling and grip because there is more tyre surface in contact with the road with more traction and braking power
The key disadvantages are:
- Road noise is greater
- The ride is harder
- More susceptible to aquaplaning due to greater tyre surface in contact with the road
