Stock size 225/50R16?

I would choose Pilot Sport A/S out of the three choices.

Toyo Proxes 4 are not what I'd consider to be tires with really good grip,
although they are far better than the Michelin MXV4 Energy that came stock
on my Mom's VW NB. If you don't mind spending for the Michelins, go for it.
