Why does Blockley manufacture inner tubes, when there are plenty 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 clear that there was a real problem sourcing good inner tubes for Veteran, Vintage and Classic cars. What there was tended to be either dimensionally incorrect or the quality invariably poor. Or both. And this is why people have the problems they do. Early on I realised the sad fact that Blockley would also need to manufacture a range of no compromise "Blockley Superior" range of tubes, made on our own tooling to correct specifications. At present we supply some 40 individual tubes. But you will notice how every one of the Classic tyre wholesaler outlets also supplies a range of tubes covering the same range, but with a much fewer number of tubes - a way of cutting down on costs, and therefore quality.
