Drivers Pack and Suspension/Tyre Choices

Looking at the head on skeleton line drawing there are two types of tyres, fat ones and skinny ones. I would guess the fat ones are the cup 2s and the skinny ones are the Good Years. Happy for someone to correct me if I'm wrong with that.

The skinny tyres are sitting higher than the fat ones. I'm presuming this is the difference between Sport setup and Touring setup. Again, happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.

If the skinny tyres are sitting higher in the drawing then the car will be closer to the ground. I would have thought the Sport setup would have fatter tyres and sit closer to the ground. Alternatively, if the suspension travel is shorter on the Sport causing the tyres to sit higher and the car to sit lower then I would have thought the fatter tyres would be higher and the skinny tyres lower.

Confusing. Are the skinny tyres winter tyres? Why would the ride height be different?

Goodyear tyres sizes here - no reason to suspect that Cup 2's will be different sizes to these...

Tyre sizes are 245/35/20 front and 295/30/20 rear for both Eagle F1s and Cup 2s.  Ride height is the same for both Touring and Sports suspensions.  Camber is increased on Sports.
