77 930

I have a 77 3 litre turbo and have the same issues regarding brakes.

I also want to keep the 16 inch Fuchs, 7=9s.

I have fitted the 930 Turbo rear calipers to the rear, and have a set of 993 Turbo calipers for the front. I have had clearance problems, but it seems if I use a total spacing of approx 53 mm ( including the spacer) the rims should work. Question is whether to use adapters to make this up, or a combination of spacer and adapter.

One concern I have is the stress on the hub, various people who run this type of caliper, use large spacers on race cars, managing to fit the assembly even under 15 inch rims, so i would imagine that if they can sustain abnormal stresses in a racing environment, I should be ok for road use- or am I incorrect in this assumption?

I should clear the fenders with the 205/55R16's on the 7's, but any input from those who have tried would be welcome.
