Why cars have different grip when they use the same tyres?

How does it not make sense? The way a car handles has a lot more to do with than just the type of rubber you put on the wheels.
Like the Weight, suspension set-up, and drivetrain.

different center of gravity, different drivetrain, different engine locations. different power to weight ratio, if we're being technical.

"Lamborghini is a super car, and so is a Porsche. so they handle the same."
incorrect. and no matter how much you spend on tires, this will never be the truth.

Both have round wheels. Maybe the tires on the jester are round and the tires on the comet are oval.

a ford focus won't handle anything like a ferrari enzo just because you may have fit them with the same exact tires
to make things a little less far fetched, a lamborghini diablo and a lamborghini murcielago also won't be the same exact kinda ride just cuz of what rubber they're sporting
