Our race car came with 928 S4 front calipers & C2 turbo rear calipers. I didn't like the brake bias at all, and didn't want to add a proportion valve. Too much front brake causing the car to nose dive under hard braking. Something to consider when mixing any front & rear calipers. I went back to 930 front & rears.

The 944 7x16's have more rear web clearance than the 911 so you may be able to get away with a smaller spacer. If you want 8's on the front then get an 8x16 from an '86 944 turbo (one year only). Same web clearance as the 7's and about 1/2" more backspacing than a 911 8". But you would still need to use a spacer to clear the caliper.

I wouldn't be mixing adapters & spacers together. I would go to a longer studs and spacers.

It sounds like if you went to a stock 930 front caliper you could fit either a 7" or 8" with 225's.
