Rolls Royce - Rolls Royce Phantom 2

The Rolls Royce Phantom 2 was introduced in 1929 having a higher compression engine that was based on the previous Phantom it replaced. The new P2 had a more "modern" way of joining the engine in unit with the gearbox. The leaf springs at the rear of the chassis was now underslung rather than the previous cantilever layout. And a sportier shorter chassis model was also made available called the Phantom 2 Continental, no doubt in an attempt to try and do something about the popularity of WO Bentleys sportier 6 cylinder cars. The Phantom 2 was built until 1935. 

Rolls Royce Phantom 2 tyre size was originally either 7.00x19 , 7.00x20 or 7.00x21 which Blockley produces, all three sizes of which offer truly superb handling and ride qualities, unlike anything else available, as well as having the period correct tread pattern fitted from new, as visible in your owners handbook! The Phantom 2 started off being fitted with the 7.00x21 tyre size for the first year of production (as fitted to it's predecessor), and by 1930 the wheel diameter was reduced to 20" and fitted with tyre size 7.00x20 . Around 1933 the wheel diameter was reduced further still and the Phantom 2 was fitted with the 7.00x19 tyre size. Details of all three sizes of the superb Blockley tyres are shown below - you cannot buy a better tyre:
