Radial Tyres Quality Guarantee

The Blockley Tyre Co. was started to design and manufacture tyres and associated parts for a very different reason to how things were being done elsewhere . The purpose of Blockley is to produce the very best tyres that is possible to make, because what was available was of a low standard, irrespective of the brand name and how expensive they were sold for! When Blockley started making radial tyres we must have been taken seriously enough for the Dunlop Aquajet tyre to get V rated over the H rating they had been for a long time, and so on, and later the same with their 205/70R15 size. Note that the low selling price of our radial Blockley tyres is because we had not increased a tyre price in 20 years, coupled with selling direct to the end user, and cutting out the "Classic" tyre wholesaler middlemen. So do not worry about what would appear our low prices - we produce tyres for different reasons to all other producers who have profit at their core, whereas we make our products because we are also end users of what we make, so we want things as good as can be.  Ask yourselves why a private individual needed to start Blockley Tyre Co. to produce the highest quality product, if what was available was adequate. One well known brand even has a faulty sidewall in their range, even to this day! The Blockley radial range of tyres are an exceptional product, where every tyre is checked for balance and roundness and marked up for the tyre fitter to position optimally on a wheel, again something that you do not see on teh brand name tyres, no doubt due to the extra cost.

Our purpose at Blockley is to produce the very best product that it is possible to make, with no shortcuts or cost constraints in either our tooling, production or attention to detail. A no compromise product. If this was not the case, there would be no point in producing the Blockley range of steel belted radial tyres.

We suggest customers scrub their tyres in, in order to remove any mold release agent from the surface - something any motorcyclist you meet would know all about! And car tyres are no different. Even vehicle manuals suggest this, along with bedding in brakes and engines. This process can occur quickly, however we would suggest anything up to 100km, which is what many owners manuals recommend - in other words tyres will improve as they are used in this early stage.

After scrubbing in you can really take advantage of the exceptional grip and overall handling of these period authentic looking Blockley tyres, in both wet and dry coditions. So much so that after driving for circa 1,000 miles, if you are not convinced the Blockley is best tyres you've ever driven on, you can return them and we would refund the purchase price of your tyres. Anyone who has actually driven on any of the Blockley radial tyres range has been surprised how good they are. Ride quality, improved handling, grip in the wet and lighter steering, as well as the cars looking so much better on them with their period authentic tread patterns. Many even use them for track days over the Avon CR6ZZ, and numerous Rallies have been won on Blockleys. But best to find out direct for yourselves! The Classic Tyre wholesaler experts will always denegrate Blockley products, because they are not allowed to sell them, and they can be very persuasive! If you try the Blockleys and if not convinced of of the claims we make then we would have them back - but so far people have only been impressed. And when you are impressed, you'll probably pass on the word.

The only thing that surprises us at Blockley is why anyone would want to buy anything else! Unless they do not know about Blockley, which is likely because we concentrate our effort and expenditure on our products rather than the advertising and marketing, which seems such a waste of time -  the funds allowing us to make new tooling and new sizes! But marketing for the big companies is probably more important than the product itself. The reason for making our tyres is because we are also end users ourselves, whicjh is why we also make some unusual sizes which we'll be unlikely to break even on, bearing in mind everything we make is on new made moulds and tooling - not old worn out antiquities. Had there been anything else of wholesome quality there would be no need to produce the Blockley range. The Blockley radial tyres are also listed on the RAC MSA List 1A (now Motorsprts UK List 1A) and are used on rallies, hill climbs and other competitions. A car using our road going radial Blockley tyres has won the RAC Rally of the Tests and the Pirelli Marathon Challenge, which speaks for itself. We are confident that anyone experiencing the Blockley radial tyre would ever want to use anything else.
