A superb quality 145 R 13 tyre built on new moulds and tooling to the usual Blockley high standards
|Rim width (min)||3"|
|Rim width (max)||4.5"|
|Rim width (recommended)||4"|
This tyre is an equivalent to the 5.20x13. Note that because today most customers opt for a radial equivalent tyre for cars that originally had cross plys (because cross ply tyres available today tend to be much worse quality than in period), these cars end up with smaller diameter tyres than they would originally have had. As a consequence Blockley have produced the best handling tyre available on the absolute maximum diameter tolerance for the 145R13 size, making it the most correct fitment possible. As with all Blockley radials, scrub them in for 30 miles or so, use them for 1,000 miles and if you are not convinced they are the best tyres you've driven on, we'll have them back for a refund! Our low price is because we sell direct.
Although produced as a tubeless type tyre, if being fitted to non tubeless type wheels we also have a thick Blockley 145x13 tube to suit.
