Re: 250 GT parts - needed

The second mirror is probably for an Alfa Spider. Note the shape of the ends. The GTE mirror ends are parallel with each other, the other one has ends that converge toward the top.

Re: Cork Adams / Precision Wire Wheels

Thanks for the reply. Any suggestions for any other wheel restorers? I've seen some good reviews for Valley Wheel in Van Nuys.

Re: fuel regulator

Fispa 3064-02. Eurospares.uk shows stock at $9.63 USD. That whole assembly was also used on some Alfas. The Alfa units have hose barbs instead of banjo fittings, but the other parts of it are the same.

Re: 250 GTE Tire recommendations

According to several comparison charts, that size is an equivalent to a 205/70 or a 185/80. What I did previously was look up all the specs to compare. The important dimensions are sidewall height and overall diameter. That Kumho looks like a great option. The specs for that size call out a 6-8" rim...
