What are the camber and caster settings?
There are several here that run a 245/50/16 on a 16 x 8 x 4.5. The theoretical diameter is 25.64". Yours are 26.1". On mine they rub in the same place if more than 4 - 4.5* castor is tuned in. With a bit less castor yours may fit.
If you have a shim stack on the aft upper control arm bolt you can try taking out equal amounts of shims from both sides and checking for clearance. It would be nice to keep 3*+ castor. In the end you may find that a 7" rim with the same backspace is needed.
Four years ago the car had 225/60/15's, 15 x 7 x 4.5bs, with just the smallest amount of rubbing at full lock on the aft section of the subframe. A 235 would have worked fine, just be aware not to leave the steering wheel cranked all the way over, or make the steering stops a little taller to reduce steering arc.
