Wally

It should work. The piston area between 944 Turbo S calipers 38/44mm and the GT2 28/32/38mm is almost negligible. You may have bad piston seals or you arent fully bled.

Yeah the 951 (944turbo) only came 7 and 8, both 23mm offset.

Alot of spacer, about 18- 20mm.

The 951 part number 16"fuchs will fit without spacer as the spokes allow for the calipers. The 911 pn ones will require alot of spacer
