    I am not positive but should be same. I have new decals 77 from Dr. Decal. You can also try Osborne reproductions, Rubber the Right Way or Ames

    I don't think dr decal even sells a tire pressure decal for '76 or '77. I've noticed some things they sell ain't always correct for yr specified.
    Jim Osborne does sell one and its listed for '75-'76, DO0396 is their part number. I hv not bought one to even know what it looks like but see it lists GM part 553841 which is same number as one on my '77 so assume it is probably correct for '77 also.
    Also just to add since we are talking decals, how many of you hv the wheel stowage decal on trunk? I don't know why they even sell that reproduction because the only decal in trunk besides a limited slip decal is the jack inst. the wheel stowage decal was removed in '76/'77 so they never had them. Just saying because I've seen many cars with these which is incorrect.

    the stowage decal they sell for non-rally wheels is terrible but the only one available for the 73-75 ... i'm hoping to find a decent original one to have a good copy made..
    ..btw, if anyone has an original tire pressure decal for the 73-75 SALON with standard wheels..(mine is '74- 15" wheels/radials), I'd love to get a pick to have that made as well..

    Well I found original '76 decal and is diff., GM# 553840 OA for '76, GM# 553841 OB for '77. Recommended tire size is diff also but decal physically looks same though I guess it was inside glove box lid on '76. Osborne makes one listed for '75-'76 listed as same pt for '77? I just ordered one to see. And going to check my buddy's '75 and see what he has.
    But it doesn't look like anybody makes correct '76 decal at this time.

    Just adding I've found another original '76 decal and it is the later 553841 so apparently it's ok too. Maybe has to due with build date.?

    Factory had to use up the old Decals before they used the new decal.

    Sound legit about using old decals first but the recommended tires are diff. F & FR series used on first while the '77 lists G & GR tires. so it could hv to do with the tires you got also. I know the glove box packet comes with appropriate tire manufacturer warranty for one of the five tires that were available on the '77 442s.

    Looked into it further and found that both '76 & '77 can use tire labels "OA" & "OB". The later OB code one is the one Jim Osborne sells, which I've seen it and is correctly worded though font is slightly diff than original but really not noticeable, good repo. All 442s would use the OB they hv the QCY option tires which are GR70-15.
