I was a bit nervous a fit the 225/50 tyres as I haven’t seen any one else with them. I agree with everything you’ve said about the tyres. I fitted Bridgestone SO2, which were far too expensive but plenty of grip and fitted them on the standard 16” Selespeed wheels.
My car has Novitec anti-roll bars but standard ride height. The rear tyres did touch the arch at first, but I carefully removed some of the lip and now its fine. I got plenty of the guys at work to sit in the back and the boot so I could see where it was touching. On the front I fitted 3mm spacers to give a bit more clearance from the top wishbone.
The tyres look great and really fill up the arches even if they do look a bit bulged out.
