1989 944 15" and 16" wheel swap

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 224,000;

I have the 15x7" rims with 215s all around and 16x8" rims, currently with 205s in front and 225s in the rear (both sets have same offset). Presently, the 16" wheels are on the car.I drive the car on the street and at DEs. Since it is time to get new tires for the 16" rims, I am considering buying a performance tire and using the 16" wheels solely for DEs, and putting the 15" wheels on for street use. Can I simply swap the 15" and 16" wheels?Also, if I am only using the 16" rims for DEs, should I get 225s all around or stick with the 205/225 combination? Any suggestions or personal experiences related to the brand and model of tire that I should consider for the 16" rims would be appreciated as well.
