That law doesn't work in the real world because it assumes perfectly smooth non distorting surfaces.  If it did work then wider tires wouldn't matter.

### The laws of physics say it shouldn't make any difference. If you have
high spots, they will get hot, but (ignoring fade) they will be as effective
since there is more pressure per square inch of contact area if it's only
contacting a portion of the total area. I say it "shouldn't" make any
difference, as I'm not convinced the theory and the practise are the same in
this case!
