125R12 White Wall
A 125R12 Blockley tyre made with a whitewall, of truly exceptional quality. This 125R12 tyre was built for the Fiat 500, but sold at a down to earth price which we are able to do because we sell direct to the end user. This tyre has the highest quality white wall, produced in the tyre mould during manufacture.

Nothing available is as good as what we have made for the Fiat 500. These 125R12 tyres are E Marked and also DOT marked for use in the USA.
The highest quality product made by Blockley for the Fiat 500 (1957 to 1975). We produced this after being petitioned by members of the Fiat 500 Club who wanted something better than what was available. Using the Blockley 125R12 white wall also means that you no longer have to use white wall flaps, which end up damaging the inner tube if used for any length of time.
This 125x12 Blockley tyre has a significantly lower list price than a Michelin or Pirelli white wall, which is only because we sell direct to the end user, so you can get the best product at a realistic price, because there have been no Classic Tyre Wholesalers getting in between. We have a Fiat 500 in our family as well, which was an extra reason for making this 125R12 size, wanting something of excellent quality. Our idea was to price this exceptional 125R12 whitewall tyre for as close a price to the standard blackwall tyres available elsewhere! By selling direct to the end user, it has been just about possible to do this. We have no doubt that, as usual, the Michelin and Pirelli tyre prices will mysteriously get lowered and the other usual shenanigans once a Blockley comes to the market - so watch this space!
This is a modern designed steel belted Radial tyre featuring an authentic period tread pattern, designed in house at Blockley, and built on brand new moulds and tooling. The Blockley 125R12 tyre has correct period dimensions and perfect for the Fiat 500. And as per all our radial tyres guarantee, if you are not convinced they are the best tyres you've driven on we will refund.
Note that we have also produced a dedicated thicker Butyl inner tube because all available tubes we found to be too lightweight, causing people problems. This thicker Blockley Superior tube will also work well in larger 145R12 tyre size.
For interest, in period a full diameter (also called 80 profile) tyre did not have the "/80" listed in the tyre size, because all radial tyres were full size. It was only much later as lower profile tyres started to become more common that many tyres started having the full profile marked on the sidewall. So 125R12 would also be referred to as 125/80R12, which both mean the same thing. Our Blockley tyres are marked 125R12 on the sidewall because this is the authentic numbering as it would have been originally on what is now a "Classic" car.
