How come for speed imports work best with low profile tires and muscle cars work best with the fat tires, why not the other way around?

my guess is imports dont make torque and most muscle cars have torque out the ass, the sidewall gives on the fat tires so they dont spin. the ricers dont really do good at all because they dont have torque or power untill they qind up and get moving.

if you see race hondas they have the big ol' mickey T's on the front lol. but on the street the smaler sidewall has less give around corners so it handels better.

the fat tires i think are used more for drag racing...i never see a muscle car on big ass slicks takin sharp turns and shit like that. and the smaller profile wide tires are used for corners like in racing.
