Why stretched tires???

I saw a 370Z today with wheels that had stretched tires on it. I wondered why the outer lip of the rim stuck out so much and then saw the tires were "stretched". Why would people do this? I figure its for lowering the car more without rubbing? Doesn't it affect the ability of the tire to perform the way it was designed to? Plus, rim sticking out so far=easy curb damage...

I am just trying to find out why so many people are doing this... Anyone?
