16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How long are you guys running your radials tires on: January 31, 2014, 06:44:15 PM
I have been trying to find Goodyear Eagle ST's or GTII's (with raised white letters) to put on my Z but have been told Goodyear no longer makes them, or any raised white- lettered tire for cars.  Neither does Firestone.  Kelsey has reproduction Goodyear Steelgards (white-lettered) and I think Goodyear Eagle GT's with outlined white letters.  The Goodyear Steelgards very likely came on your '78 Z28 as original tires as they did on my '78 Z28.  The only tire I can find as a new radial tire with raised white letters is the Cooper Cobra Radial GT, other than of course the BFG Radial TA's.  Hope this helps.       
I drive my cars a lot. To work, 10 miles from home, to meetings and on the interstate. I better change these tires out. I have always run BF Goodrich Radial TA's but would like to check out others. I was thinking about Good Year Eagle STs. I had them on my 78 Z28 in high school. Does anyone have any other suggestions? All ears.

Thanks

Lawrence

Thanks for the info, guys. 
18  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Storing Tires on: November 19, 2013, 11:59:53 PM
What is the preferred or best way to store a set of  tires?  I plan on keeping a set of reproduction Goodyear bias ply tires in my cellar where they will not be exposed to any sunlight.  The cellar is also ventilated and not a lot of moisture accumulates even in the winter.  Is it best to store them upright not touching each other like they commonly do in tire stores?  Should they be rotated every so often?  Is it better to store them mounted on wheels than not mounted?  And if so, how is the best way to store the wheel-tire combination?  Stacked, upright, etc.?  Thank you.

Thanks for the input.

To the best of my recollection I paid around $400 to have a set of 4 rally wheels sand blasted and powder coated.

When you guys mention scuffing the powder coating on rally wheels before painting them the correct GM argent silver what exactly do you mean?  I am guessing it is because the silver paint won't adhere properly to the smooth powder coating?  How much scuffing is just right and how much is too much?  Would you use a fine grit sandpaper to do it?  Thank you.

A Dec. of '68 date code would line up with it being original to my 01C car.

Another pic.

Thanks for all your info guys.  It appears my shifter is original.  I said that the handle was riveted to the shifter, but it does look more like a shim on each side that locks in and holds the handle on.  The handle is round except for the flat part where the word HURST is on each side.  Here are some photos, hope this helps.

I am trying to determine if the Hurst shifter in my '69 Z/28 is the original one that came from the factory or not.  The handle is riveted to the shifter rather than bolted.  On the shifter it says:  Hurst Competition/Plus, has a number, 128D11C stamped on it, and the following US patent number, 3216274, also stamped on it.  I am thinking that this is not an original shifter that was installed at the factory but would like to know for sure.  Thank you.

Thanks for your input and answers, guys.  When one knows as little as I do mechanically, your knowledge is greatly appreciated.

OK, I found my original thread.  It was under the title What Would You Do?  Sounds like I need a shifter and or linkages rebuild?
