Yes, that was from me!! Be sure to mention my name next time! Don't want to be accused of being an "unnamed source", LOL.

Some (or all ???) west coast wheels are gray on the back. See above. Since this is a CA car, supports my speculation posted by Dale above that Fremont cars would be gray too.

It is possible the assembly plant just put the wrong wheels on the car for the J50 disc brakes and hence the "correct" F70 red stripe tires for the DG wheels.
There is some evidence that ordering F70 tires on a non-SS automatically bumped the wheel size up to 14x6. Bill Wente has an elcamino that came that way. However, I have what appears to be an original 1967 14x5 spare with original F70 tire. It is definitely an original 67 wheel with original paint, and definitely a 1967-only Firestone F70. However, it is possible that the tires were "upgraded" at the dealer (or soon after purchase of the car) and that it did not come from the factory in that combination. Given Bill's car and now this one, I would lean toward the theory that ordering F70 tires on a non-SS automatically bumped the wheel size up to 14x6.

There were actually at least 8 KH plants at that time (the plant # is embedded in the KH logo on the tire side of the wheel, and some of them have an 8), but I don't know how many of those were actually making wheels for GM.
