Does anyone know what make/model of tires were OEM for the '82 (not S/E) 'Vettes?  I know the code and size (QXH P255/60R 15 S/B but don't know the mfg.  Trying for the 'all original' look because the car is 100% stock.

Just a note on an old post.  My original 82 Sticker listed the tires as:
QGR P225/70R-15 S/B RAD W/LTR or Goodyear Eagle ST Steel Belted Radials. These were on the car when I found it 4 years ago.  The second owner said they were original.  I just replaced them 5 months ago with Firehawk Indy 500s.  I am very happy with the performance.Tongue
