It is still to cold to judge completely but I am running Conti DWs in 225/50/r16. They are just a hair larger than stock. Slight slight rubbing over large dips, humps or bumps in the road. All that being said, they are really really quiet.

I hope you planned for the inevitable seized bushing or 3 in the rear lower control arms, camber arms, and toe arms. I just had to replace all 3 to do the suspension in my car with poly same as yours. And I had to replace the rear subframe since a substantial portion of it was so rusted it fell off during disassembly.
