And your Mustang has been in its current form for how long??? And it's still wayyyyyy behind a 1LE let alone a ZL1 and Z/28.

The current wheel setup of the Z28 does not have the rear tires stretched.

Where did you find the wheel size? Because I have looked around and all I could find was that it had 19 inch wheels and P305/30ZR19 tires all around.

As you can probably tell by the picture below I follow the Z/28 very closely. Head on over to the Z/28 threads and check out our discussions, they're quite informative. They've been going on since, well a very, very long time. I also really like the 1LE I'm an NA kinda guy.

Well this may piss off some people but I think the 2014 Z/28 is better looking than the new c7 corvette ( I hate the back end of that car )

I've never been much of a Vette guy till the C7. I'm torn between the C7 and Z/28.

The 2014 front comes off as an aerodynamic evolution of the 2010-2013, while the rear is something very different.
