I went through the same thing when I bought 15" Borbet Type C's for my
GT.  I determined that the little extra sidewall was worth the
protection for the wheels.  Not to mention the tremendous difference in
tire prices!  I had been running the 15 inchers with Dunlop D60A2's in a
205/50-15 and they worked well on both the street and the track.  

However, they were stolen off of my GT sometime early Friday morning, so
if anybody tries to make you a really good deal, let me know!  <grin>  
At least I was able to round up a set of stock wheels for $100 so that
the car isn't sitting on the ground anymore.  Now . . . To replace the
steering column they bent . . .
