You need to take the offset of the rim and the car's ride height into account. Stock 16" rim's offset is +39.
245 will be the best fit on a 8" wide rim, but there isn't a whole lot of tires. 245/50/R16 will have a few street tires to choose (I just try tirerack) and track tires. You'll be about 3% faster than what the speedo says. If you don't mind stretching the tire, you can put 225/45/16. But you'll be almost 4% slower that the speedo. and bring the car a bit lower.
