Re: 68Z28 tires

Kelsey is the only one that repops the Goodyear tires. You need E70-15 to be correct.

Re: 68Z28 tires

Raised White Letter Tires were not available until 1969. How about a set of Firestone Wide Oval Redlines?

?????

Do you have Jerry McNeish's book on the '67 & '68 Camaros?? RWL Goodyear E70/15 Wide Tread GTs were what the Z/28s came with.

Re: 68Z28 tires

yeah, but if you think about how long they will last you if your only driving on sunny Sundays (10yrs maybe) it's worth the extra $$ for the correct tire.

Re: 68Z28 tires

Well if your gonna drive your car that hard you can't be too worried about $$ lol, because things always break when pushing it as we know.
