I purchased an 89 911 with 993 brakes and 17 inch Fiske wheels. How small a wheel can I go to with the 993 brakes. Thinking of 16 inch.

Wheels and Tires

Hi.  The car came with 993 brakes and 17 inch wheels. Tires are 205 50 R17 front and 255 40 R17 back.  I am looking for a little smoother ride and was thinking of changing to a smaller wheel (like 15 or 16 inch). I am thinking that a smaller wheel will not accomodate the brakes. What would you suggest for a wheel tire configuration. This is primarily for pleasure driving. The current tires are high performance summer so I am also looking at an all season tire to stretch the season out a bit for the vehicle.
