Low-profile tyres - Tyres with shallow sidewalls, fitted to high-performance or sporty cars. Typically, an average family car will have 65-profile tyres, which means the sidewall height is 65% of the tread width. Performance cars can be found running on 50-, 45- and even 35-profile tyres. These will give extra grip, but reduce ride comfort.
