If it's a 105 you are talking about, then these cars were not meant to run that wheel tyre set up 24/7 as it punishes 'wears out' the steering box. When they were racing GTA's with 7" wheels they could just get another new steering box from the parts bin, not a problem. Which could explain why Alfaholics have new billet ones on offer. Put the original wheels and tyres specs back on the car. If it's still 'Tram-lining' you have a worn out your steering box past it's usable specs a combination of ware over 50 years and then further accelerated ware thanks to the heavy loads of your tyre and wheel combination.
I think the steering box is one of the 'Achilles heals' of the car.
