I have an opportunity to get a good deal on a set of Radial T/A 295/50 and 235/50 to put on a new set of 15X8 snowflakes. Anyone running this setup?  How's the fit? Letters in or out? Any pics?

Trans Am Information / 1981 Turbo recaro ta identity?
« Last post by wolfdoguk on May 04, 2016, 07:27:41 AM »
Hi guys, I'm new to this site, been registered for a while but this is my first post.
I hope someone can help me out here.
I own a 1981 TA turbo. I'm going to have to do a ground up restoration after it got buried under 10ft of water back in 2007 and wasn't covered by insurance...
I'm confused as to what it actually is! It's a special edition, and appears to be a 1981 Daytona pace car replica, it has the decals, 4 wheel disc brakes, recaro seats, no rear windshield demister, red instrument lights etc... However, the seats are recaro, but have a solid headrest (as opposed to the netted ones), they have no red inserts like a Daytona, it has instead, a pattern of beige colour in a kind of check style halfway on the seat-backs, the carpet is black, not red, the door cards are Daytona with the embroidered bird, but the carpet at the bottom has been dyed black OVER existing red! The hubcaps simply had "pontiac" as opposed to the firebird emblem. Research suggests a special edition, but exactly which one, I am not 100%, everything points to a pace car, except for the seat covers and carpet, it's all very confusing! The car is original and was imported here to the UK back in 89.
I hope someone can shed some light, the chassis number is: 1G2AX87T3BN115524
Also, there are a couple of photos.
Thank you for reading.

Certainly doesn't hurt, some of the older grease tends to set hard, or get pushed to the limits of the track.
