This Blockley 155HR15 tyre is the radial equivalent of the old cross ply size 5.50x15. This 155R15 size was referred to as 155x380 also, and is the radial equivalent covering cross ply tyre sizes 4.80x15 and 5.20x15 . This Blockley 155 R 15 is a full size "80 profile" steel belted Radial tyre, with a good speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house. Originally produced to fit Alfa Romeo Guilietta 750 / 101 as fitted by the factory (although many owners fit our 165 VR 15 ). This 155 R 15 size is also perfect for the original Volkswagen Beetle where the owner wants something better than what they are used to. Our Volkswagen customers were amazed that a tyre with such a good load rating was finally available for their cars. And we guarantee if they are not the best tyres a customer has driven on, do 1,000 miles or so and we will refund. These Blockley 155R15 tyres are E Marked and DOT marked (for use in the USA)
We also produce this tyre in a white wall version.
Note that 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 155R15 would also be referred to as 155/80R15, which both mean the same thing. Our Blockley tyres are marked 155R15 on the sidewall because this is the authentic numbering as it would have been originally, on what is now a "Classic" car.
This Blockley 155HR15 tyre is the radial equivalent of the old cross ply size 5.50x15.
Every one of these tyres is inspected and checked for dynamic balance - The small painted yellow circle on the side wall can be aligned with the valve stem by the tyre fitter so they know the optimum place to put it. We perform this additional inspection process as we are determined to supply the best possible no-compromise product.
