Default Wheel difference?? Rounded vs Edged

this is a question about style of tire and not about the specific examples i am about to show you...

what is the difference between tires that are more rounded on the sides of the tread and tires that are more edgey in the sides?

example

rounded...Goodyear Wrangler
Edgey... BF goodrich T/A KO (wish i could find a better example)

I would think the "edgy" tires provide more foot print and also increase ridgitity and strutural strength to the overall tire, that just my opinion and I haven't any proof to back it up. I have never been found of the "round" tires, I know exactly what you mean.

Im gunna say the reg Goodyear is that way because it it develpoed more for on road use, while as the KO was developed for offroading/ rockcrawling which needs more of a "side bite" in order to gripe.
