Re: Not your typical low profile tire...

Notice the height of the sidewalls on those tires! Compare that to today's 30-40% low profile tires of the street legals sports cars we drive.

I guess that rubber is needed to cushion the road given that the suspension itself is very hard. Also... lower profiles would imply larger wheels raising the unsprung weight.
