The lower profile tires are faster...racers want to go faster at all costs no matter what they say. This is why touring cars went from fun parking lot racers to super technical critical racing machines. This is why 1/10th pan went from the most popular class in R/C to extinction.

When I started racing we had 3 foam tires...Blue, Green and Yellow. We raced 1200SCR Red Sanyos cell that would last 2 years or more and still be fast.

Now everything is faster, gets used up faster, worn out faster and is more expensive...but that what we racers wanted.
