Goodyear F70/15 Speedway Wide Tread
The 1968 Stingray was the start of a new generation Corvette. This platform involved several chassis design changes to include wider based tire and wheel assemblies. The engineers from GM chassis design working in conjunction with their counterparts at Goodyear, advanced tire development by designing the F70/15 Goodyear Speedway wide tread, and what a tire it is. Although belted bias construction existed, the belted tires caused the Stingray chassis to begin drifting when cornering at a lower rate of speed. That had to go, the Goodyear Speedway non-belted tire solved the problem. Allowing the Corvette to attain a higher level of performance.
