I always see Firestone and Goodyear tires as being the original tires for our cars but what about the other tire manufacturers that were used?

Yes, thank you Phillip.  I was curious what denoted which car got which tires.  I guess that would have been the better way to ask my original question.  Original spare tire from my fathers 68.

Great pictures!  Looks like that spare never came out of the trunk.  Is your father the original owner?

Could you post pictures of the trunk, jack and lid?  What's the build date?
Original 68s with decent documentation are getting hard to find!  Thanks in advance.

Can you post the length of the valve stem also - from the rim to the tip?  Thanks

Darrell, can you also post a close up picture of the date stamp on the jack rivet? It appears to be 0L which would be November of 1970!

FYI....my original 1968 Z28 spare tire's valve stem is 1 5/16" from the rim to the top of stem.  As far as I know the stem and valve cap are original.  The valve cap has a smooth top and has a "S" inside the cap.

Would show my jack date but it wasn't stamped very heavy and you can barely make out a piece of the numbers.

Ed, you would be correct it is OL..  Honestly I had never thought to look at the date of the jack but for whatever reason my father must have changed or swapped it out for whatever reason.  He is no longer around so I can not ask him.  Thanks for pointing it out though.  Now I know.

I noticed that you have the number "26" in grease pencil on the spare tire....do you also have the same number in grease pencil on the firewall and inside the front lower valence panel.  My Z28 has the number "22" inside the spare wheel and the other places mentioned.
