1986 944 turbo tire size balance

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944 Turbo; Year: 1986; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5L w/chip; Total Mileage: 98,000;

I am considering running 8x16's on both the front and rear of the car. It seems as though most Porsches have a smaller wheel size in the front. What are the reasons behind this wheel set up and are there any areas of concern for having the same size all around? I am also upgrading the suspension with 250 lb. springs in the front and 27mm torsion bar and 80 lb. coil over Koni's in the rear which should keep a neutral spring balance.
