"Did they use tires to make the barbel look more impressive, since they're less dense than weights and therefore a larger tire is needed for the same poundage? Or is there a reason for it?"

I`d imagine those tires are there for protection. So the floor doesn`t get damaged when he drops those weights.

I imagine they used the tires to lift the center (the bar) off the ground, making it easier for him to pick up just a teeny bit. Plus, it looks more impressive. I guess.
