Comp T/A Info

Thanks to Jim Mattison of Pontiac Historical Services what you see above is one of 72 of Pontiac's newest collectable cars.  The 'Comp T/A' is a 1995 Trans Am celebrating the 25th Anniversary of B.F. Goodrich's Comp T/A performance line of tires.  The car's design got the approving nod from Pontiac in less than 3 months from concept to final approval.  This was due to the dedication of Jim Mattison and Ed Hamburger (president of Street Legal Performance).  SLP is well known to anyone interested in Pontiac's for producing the Firehawk. SLP is also known for producing high performance parts for all types of late model F-Bodies.

                          OK. Now for the real stats on the Comp T/A's:
       First, you have to start with a special order T/A with the following from Pontiac:

  • - V87S + Y82 Trans Am Coupe or T-Top
  • - Bright Silver Metallic Exterior - 13
  • - AQ9 Ultima Graphite Leather Buckets
  • - 1SA Option Package
  • - R6V Merchandising Option Code
  • - T43 Trans Am Spoiler
  • - GU5 Performance Axle (Automatics Only)
  • - QLC High Performance Tires


       Second, SLP will add the following goodies to your ride.

  • - Uniquely-Styled hood and cold air induction package (More commonly known as Ram-Air now!) Please note, the Comp T/A hood is of composite construction.
  • - Dark gray 10" wide center stripe’
  • - Matching gray 'Comp T/A' headlamp door and wheel center cap graphics
  • - 3-Dimensional matching gray 'Comp T/A' door graphics
  • - 17 x 9 5-spoke Firehawk style alloy wheels(Speedline)
  • - BFG P275/40ZR17 Comp T/A performance tires
  • - Dual cast aluminum exhaust tips
  • - Sport Suspension Package (Std. with manual coupe, Opt. with auto., N/A with -Tops)
  • - Hurst Shifter with custom leather wrapped shift knob (N/A with auto)
  • - Heavy Duty embroidered 'Comp T/A' floor mats
  • - 'Comp T/A' Cloisonne' numbered dash plaque (1 to 200) and Two(2) matching key  fobs
  • - Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil and rear axle oil, semi-synthetic power steering lube and a premium synthetic media oil filter

       For a few bucks more SLP will add:

  • - Sport Suspension Package (if you have an auto)
  • - BF Goodrich's Comp T/A ‘R1’ Competition series ultra performance tires mounted and balanced on an additional set of 'Comp T/A' wheels.  This tire and wheel combination will improve 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile acceleration and handling significantly but will result in much harsher ride quality(stiffer side wall) and reduced tread life(10,000 miles) compared to the standard Comp T/A ZR tires.
    - 2 on the left performance exhaust system

    Delivery will be dealer direct.
