The max wheel width for that tire is 7". The OP really needs 205 or wider tires for the 7.5" wheel. Not that he couldn't make it work - you see lowriders all the time with too-narrow tires on...

Well, we use a different scale than you do....I can't speak intelligently about it but our 93 octane here in the US is equivalent to about 98 octane when you're living upside down.

It does exactly that. Less oxygen = less chance of pre-detonation. The lower air pressure effectively lowers the compression ratio. 91 is the highest ordinarily available (unless you go looking for...

It might be worthwhile contacting Classic Alfa for a lead on key blanks. They sell locksets with the proper keys. It could be they're just sitting on a big stash of them but if not and someone is...

Totally disagree with that - the 185/70-14 Pirelli Cinturatos are phenomenal.

OOOOHHHH, she's a honey! You're complete screwed now..... ;-) My bet is you'll part with your Giulia years before they pry the keys to the Spider out of your cold, dead hands.

Great looking wheels and if the offset is correct should fit just fine. 195/60-15 is the stock size for late model Quadrifoglio cars. Not sure what year your car is but basically nothing changed...

Check out those zig-zag sipes in the outer thread blocks. They should be quite good in the snow for an A/S tire - probably not as good as those Vredesteins you mentioned though.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Spider came out in 1966 wearing 165r14 tires and didn't really change that much until production ceased in 1994. Yeah, they did stiffen up the chassis a bit over...

Most likely. Discussions around that subject have come up before. I believe most model year 1990 cars were build in 1989. Mine was - in September.

No PS in 1990. I am convinced that not all 1990s were created equal, but that would be a pretty big change!

Not on mine but I did find it at the end of the appendix. Slide A13 has a breakdown of symbols and notation. * does indeed indicate air conditioning.

The Sportracs look like they'd do a pretty good job. If you were to go up to 205/50 there are all sorts of high performance tires available.

That said, there is definitely something to be said for...
