Sorry for the noob question, do all cars have the build plate? If so, where is it located on the car?

Nice Z/28. Great Tires ! I have the same ones on my Z/28. Totally change the car for the street, so much smoother, no tram lining, and they grip like glue. You will love them.

Yes, all have the plaque. It is under the engine cover, right side towards the rear.

Thank you. They did take out the tramlining. Michelin tires, no matter the platform, will always be the best option for a vehicle. Top notch manufacturing and quality

Thanks. I've seen your car up there, you do well there. I go up to track nights to watch friends/family. I'm not tracking this. Just street car. Next time we're both there I'll make sure to introduce myself

Iím a bit of a rookie, what does removing coil covers do?
Also, where did you get Michelinís and who put them on? I hear Continental are a good choice too?

Coil covers are just the vanity covers on the motor that cay 'camaro' and '427'. I took them off because I prefer the look without them as well as people claim the stickers on the lettering come off due to heat eventually

I got the michelin's through discount tire direct (they actually $100 off (4) currently, IIRC). Local tire guy mounts and roadforce balances them for me. Michelin is far superior to Continental in my experience. May be more money put ride/noise/grip/durability and warranty far out weigh the minimal price difference. Also size varies from manufacturer to manufacturer... Michelin is wider than the same size Continental
