    I saw that a couple of wks ago. It's not exactly the same.
    Too bad the Goodyear Polyglas in a radial isn't out with it.
    I would wait for the Goodyears.

    In 1975 I paid $67 each for them at the local Firestone store for my 1971 Z28.

    I wish they would have put the 60 in the oval, the radials look rounded on the edges so they do look different. I am on the fence on which ones to order.

    I sent a question to Coker asking about the 60 in the oval. I'll let you know their response.

    I already know the answer, I talked with the rep at SEMA they had the radials on display, he said no 60 inside the oval.
