Which tires are correct for a 69 Camaro SS/RS built 03D? I have seen both Firestone Wide-O-Oval and Goodyear Poly-Glass.

Thanks

The standard SS tire was an F70 x 14 bias-ply blackwall but there were a number of brands and optional styles. An 03D build was probably ordered late in February. I do not know if the FG belted tires were available at that time. They are not in the Jan 2 69 ordering info; they are in the April 1 info.

PL4 F70 X 14 FG BELTED WH LET TIRES
PL5 F70 X 14 WHITE LETTERED TIRES
PW7 F70 X 14 WHITE STRIPE TIRES
PW8 F70 X 14 RED STRIPE TIRES
PY4 F70 X 14 FG BELTED WH STRP TIRES
PY5 F70 X 14 BELTED RED STRP TIRES

Goodyear, Firestone and Uniroyal [Tiger Paws] were all used in production for the 1969 Camaro SS. I am fairly certain the Firestone "Wide-O-Oval" is a 1970 tire. 1969 style Firestones had small white letters.

On the bottom of my car shipper, where it says "This vehicle is equipped with ..." it lists wide-oval tires. Does this give an indication of what came on the car or is the wide-oval just a generic designation for tires at that time. The car is a California built pace car.

If you have the shipper you should be able to tell if it was built with optional tires. If no tire option is listed it was built with blackwall F70 x 14 tires.

Camaro SS window stickers/shippers had the listing of SS equipment at the bottom which included wide-oval tires.

I do want to put White letter tires on the car. Which of the "period" white letter tires would be correct for the 03D date?
Thanks for all the support, Team Camaro.
