Also just because it is firmer, has a higher tension rating, larger diameter - doesn't mean you will get positive results. Firmer/tighter is not always better, any racer will tell you this. Your driving style and many physical variables will be different for different people. I have tuned to and driven cars too tight and have had to "loosen" them out. Control is your important factor and usually it is the newbie who prefers very tight because they interpret this as mishandling of the car, or they are too nervous as to the oversteer characteristic or roll factor... even though if left it yielded faster times only if the driver would adjust to it.
my 2 cents
