Inner Tubes

Why does Blockley Tyre Co. produce its own inner tubes, when inner tubes are available from a variety of sources, including well known brands such as Michelin and Continental?

Being involved with tyre design and manufacture it soon became abundantly clear that there was a real problem sourcing good inner tubes for the Veteran, Vintage and Classic range of tyres we were making.  What was on offer was invariably either dimensionally incorrect (where one tube covered far too many sizes as was never the case in period) or the quality was lacking either in material type, thickness or the way it was produced such as thickness at the joint - which causes bands of wear each side of this joint as well as extra out of balance weight being introduced.  These are some of the reasons why people have the unnecessary problems they experience, not perhaps realising it is the tube at fault. Early on I realised the sad fact that Blockley would also need to invest in tooling to produce a sizeable range of no compromise "Blockley Superior" tubes, made on our own tooling to correct specifications, and using the best material and quality control. This way a customer using a Blockley tyre will not be compromised and can have a really good inner tube to suit their tyre of choice. At present we supply some 45 individual tubes, but this is an ongoing process. But notice how the Classic tyre wholesaler outlets (who we do not deal with) also supply a range of tubes covering the same range that Blockley makes, but this is achieved with a fewer number of actual tubes! One way to keep this from the customer could be by using a code number for their tube, rather than the actual size, and of course not listing what range of tyre sizes a single tube is meant to cover, to give the impression they are individually sized --  one way of cutting down on costs. Now you can comprehend a little of how these big companies would appear to be interested in profit rather than supplying the best possible product to the end user.

And if you are fitting an inner tube on an original wire wheel make sure you use one of our Blockley rim bands where there is call for a rim band.
