You are bang on target bro
I didnt do much of a research before going for these. But once i got the tires on my car, i realized there are other factors to consider other than looks of the tire.
I had another option of 16" alloys with 40 profile. Now I am happy i didnt go for this set.
Anyways, 205/55/15 is not a bad option either . Apart from rough ride on dirty roads there are no issues with this yet.

Let me add my tuppence worth. As correctly pointed out tubeless and low profile is comparing apples to oranges. I think most low profile tyres are tubeless.
Just remember that tube technology survives in India and maybe a few other countries. The world is Tubeless, and the argument is dead. Even int he early 1970's when I was a student in the UK one talked of tubed tyres only in the context of 'wire wheels' since these were often not sealed to hold the air.
