Re: Firestone-Goodyear

Go to the Forum section under tires and wheels and "re-ask" the question...also go to the search and look for old forums on this as well...I would answer ...but I'm not sure,i know the redlines were really popular and i believe they were firestones,not sure

Re: Firestone-Goodyear

Try putting in original tires...instead of origanal tires...the spelling error with an "A "instead of an "I" maybe throwing the search off. I did a search using "original tires" in the search box and it brought up a bunch of threads...look at the 13th one down about "69 z-28 original tires" has a pretty good discussion with some posted pictures...hope this helps

Re: Firestone-Goodyear

I was told by Jim at HBC that Firestone was the 67 core tire and Goodyear was used for overflow. Assume this is correct...not sure about the other years...

Re: Firestone-Goodyear

They could have received either one. If you are going for the original bias ply look both Firestone's or Goodyear's would be correct for a first gen.
