The spoiler and low rear bumper is what gave it away for me. I had an '87 GT back in the college days. Man those cars could scoot. I had 3 roommates; one drove and '86 or '87 vette, another an IROC 350, another an RX-7 turbo and my '87 GT. To say we had a few drags would be putting it mildly. I beat them all handily, only the Vette beat me once and that was do to driver error. Good times!!

Nice.

How are the WW 2.55 LTs working on the 819 rims? I've been running the 2.5 Weir Wolf race up front on my Cane Creek Zonos which are the same width as the 819s and wondered if the 2.55 (which are a bigger volume tire) would fare. Do they squirm or roll over in corners? I love the tread pattern and it grips like crazy in the dry loose over hardpack, but the 2.5 seems a bit slow rolling. It fits pretty well on that rim but it may be pushing it a bit for size.

I haven't tried it tubless yet. Any issues with the tubless setup with that tire?

Thanks.

I only have one ride with this set up and found it to be very fast rolling and didn't notice any roll over so far, im taking a little longer ride this weekend and ill let you know how it does.
