That looks good!

BF Goodrich Radial TAs. Of course I put those on my 87 Grand National.

What's wrong with these? Just need a cool 15" wheel to go with them.

Actually the Z/28 had already been in production for a year or more when that one off '68 Z/28 was built. Here is a link to some pictures and a brief description, don't know if the car is still around or not.

It came in a pen... a duplicolor product. Red , white and yellow were the choices.

There is also a true tire paint product. Cant remember the name.... I'll dig up my old thread if you need me to.

Thanks!
Adding raised letters onto the tire would seem to throw the wheel out of balance???

Why did the pen style not last?

After much thought I am bummed to say that the Z/28 will not be in my driveway. It's not because GM failed in any sort of way... It's because its actually more than I wanted. In all honesty it's a little to hardcore to be a DD.

Congrats to GM for creating this beast... I just wish it wasn't so beastly.

I can't believe what I just typed.....
