traction could actually be improved, smaller diameter tires act like a gear change in the rear end, I am running 205/50r15's on my e36 325is for autocross purposes instead of the stock size 205/65r15. same size of contact patch, spins quicker and rims and tires are lighter!
more traction can be obtained my running a wider tire !!
a smaller width tire with better grip will also improve traction over a wider tire providing less grip!!
