Aha!

I am not sure what he is noticing there - it is hard to imagine the wheel is any lighter, given the wider tyre, and so it should steer just the same given similar geometry. But he's noticed something, and liked it.

A lot of it might be simply tyre construction and profile. Can make a huge difference.
