69 Camaro Tire Options
« on: March 20, 2013, 01:59:21 AM »
We are restoring a 69 RS SS Convert, 350/300 hp auto car. 

For rims we are going with the early YA's - dated nov of 68. 

Car is a 12C car/Norwood

Question - related to tire options - looking in the options list i see 2 option codes

PY4 - F70 x 14 Special Belted White Stripe

PY7 - F70 x 14 Special White Stripe

What is the difference,  Who was the manufactures and what was the white strip width. 

Also - any pics appreciate. 

Thanks CRG for the space

Most L48's came with the standard SS tire - PL5 white lettered .
PW7 was no cost - white stripe.
PY4 was white stripe fiberglass belt - $25 on an SS.

The three manufacturers made the various tire sizes / models - no one source had a lock on the business.
