RT-615's - Reinforced or normal sidewalls?

I'm looking at these for auto-x and was wondering if someone had experience with these.

Apparently there are 215/40/17's that have reinforced sidewalls (my current size tire) and 215/45/17's with "normal" sidewalls, which of course is the SVT tire size and a recommended favorite around here, as you should all know.

So, what would suit the track better? I would assume reinforced but that's why I'm asking the question, I can only assume and you know what they say about assuming. I have never run 45's either, so I'm not even sure if I would rub or not (pretty mild drop). I didn't have any problems with a 40 series.

Yes, that is a banana in my pocket.
