Not sure how it matches up to stock, but I've run 215 65 R15 on front and like the look.     Could do 225 65 R15 up front also. 
I think 255 60 and 245 60 both look good in back.  I like running the 65 series up front because it gives you a tire as tall as the rear without a chance of rubbing.
Just depends on how much of the wheel well you want filled.  Just my opinion.  Hope it helps.

I bought a SS grill emblem in 1986 when I was painting a car I owned.  Bought it from the local Chevy parts department.  It came with the larger backing plate.  I'm guessing the smaller is the installed from the factory part.  Hope this helps.

Anyone notice the mono leaf springs?  

Does 4A date and April 16 dealer sticker work?

I would think that those production numbers for the axles are only for cars specifically ordered with those ratios, when they were not part of the cars economy, standard or performance axle ratios.  I have a BL 3.07 non posi axle, and it was the standard axle ratio for a small block SS.  I can gaurantee you that it is not part of one of those 314 3.07 axles listed under RPO HO1.

X2.  That is my understanding.  We need Kurt or someone in the know to comment.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anybody running 275R60 X 15 tire? on: March 23, 2012, 07:12:26 PM
Once apon a time I had some wide 50's on my 68.  One time I pulled off a narrow road and partilally into a drainage ditch.  When I got back on the road the left side tire came down out of the wheel well and pulled the lip of the quarter panel with it.  Angry The quarter edge cut a chunk out of the outside edge of the tire.  I repaired the quarter lip with some pliers.  But from then on I was careful to be sure the back tires stayed level to each other. 

A long story to say that the rear suspension is not independent.  If one rear tire drops out of the wheel well, the other rear tire tucks into the wheel well.  If your tire is too wide, it could catch the quarter lip like mine did. 

On the rear, I run no wider than 245 60's and wouldn't consider wider than 255 60.

Good luck.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How much does a Jerry Mac Neish certification add to a cars value? on: January 14, 2012, 09:36:13 PM
Ramjett54,
Can I ask what makes you think your car is an original Z?  Does it have the original paint? 

The reason I ask is I am in a similar situation.  My car has never been restored, but it is missing the original drive train.  I go back and forth on this same question.  My car will never be worth the same as a 100% factory original car, but at the same time I don't want the car to lose any more of its its factory identity.  I am leaning toward the certification for this reason.  I can take pictures, but the 3rd party credibility of Jerry might be better when I try to sell it.  Will it add to the value?  I don't know, but it won't hurt it.  I'd be interested in knowing your thoughts.
