Default 1968 Camaro Stock Wheels and Tires

Hello Camaro owners:

I'm entering my 1968 Camaro into judging competition. I need to have bias ply tires on the car for originality. I've attached a photo of a 1968 Camaro (from 1968) and would like to know if anyone can tell me what was the brand of tire put on the car from the factory, the size of the tire (E70 x 14?), and finally what was the actual size of the pinstripe (3/8" or 1")? Hopefully, the photo will help. For background, my car was manufactured in May 1968, standard 327 mt, basic model (not a Z28, SS, or RS). I also have stock hubcaps to use with the car, but am wondering if the chrome finish Chevy Rallye wheels with Chevrolet Derby cap would also meet the originality requirement for a 68 Camaro. Many thanks for all the help. Tommy 68

Post 68 Camaro..

looks like the 7.35 x 14 tires would probably have been standard...there were options for white line/redline...rally wheels were optional on the base Camaro.
