nah i dont think you should drive the corsas standard wee mountain bike tyres beyond there limits which isnt much, ive had plenty with tiny tyres running 13s and never had a problem unless i through it into corners where the car clearly hates it

Yeah standard rims and tyres are built for much, especially if you push them too much and not if you smack them sideways into the curb. Standard tyres dont like being thrown into corners.

Normal corsa tyres limits are quite close to normal driving conditions as the car isnt really designed for speed and to be driven hard, i have found that out on a few occasions (yeh they were mainly lift off oversteer too)

Were they Corsa C sxi wheels? think they 7j, wouldnt class them as skinny.
