Tire Size

Could somebody tell me which tires handle better around corners a smaller low profile tire or a big fatter tire? I've heard different stories on this.

A smaller lower profile tire with a narrower sidewall, because there is less sidewall to flex.

The previous answers are correct however the part you sacrifice to get that handling is the ride. It will get very stiff.
