I didn't watch the video, but if Mark did say the Z/28 is 33mm lower than a 1LE, I'm inclined to dismiss it as a slip of the tongue. The numbers obviously support the Z/28 being 33mm lower than an...

28.70" (OEM SS P-Zero) - 26.14" (Z/28 Trofeo R) = 2.56" / 2 = 1.28" or 32.50mm

Your 0.8" is based on the 27.9" diameter of the OEM 1LE tire.


In other-words, the Z/28 is 33mm lower than the...
