    Chuck and I just spent some time on the phone talking tire pressure stickers (it's a Chuck thing) because someone on ebay was selling a NOS one and he wasn't sure if it was correct. Well it wasn't anything like mine, so I thought I would start a tread to see if any 70Z's out there still had the original sticker.
    Mine is missing part of it but you can still read the part number as 3989408 and you can get an idea of what it should look like, but I'm sure there is a better example then mine. And does anyone reproduce the correct one.
    Thanks, Jack

    I remember your tread Gary, but I was wondering about the Z28's and the F60-15 tires which I would think got a different stricker. My car is a 04B norwood build.

    I think that Chevy lumped a number of models together by using a single tire decal with all the different tire sizes that were available.
    The BM decal had
    F70x14
    F70x15
    F60x15
    The F70x14 was for the SS, the F60x15 was for the Z28, and the F70x15 was probably for a tire option that never made it into production, so by mid-April when the BM decals were depleted, they switched to the BW decal which doesn't list the F70x15 size as an option anymore. The BW decal still had both the F70x14 and the F60x15 listed on it, and reading through that old thread tells us that the BW decal also had the 3989408 part number on it.

    OK, here is the good, the bad, and the ugly of tire decals for 70 SS and Z28 cars.

    Upper left is an original BM decal used from January-early April 70.
    Upper right is a reproduction of the BW decal used from mid-April to end of 70 production.
    Lower left is a reproduction AO decal that is listed by some restoration suppliers for these applications, but I've never seen one on an original 70 Camaro.
    Lower right is a reproduction GZ decal that is listed by some reproduction suppliers for 70 Z28, but I can't authenticate this one either
