A wider tyre for earlier classic Mini on 10" wheels, offering great handling and even better looks!
The 165/70R10 size is basically a wider version of the standard (80 profile) 145R10 Austin Mini tyre size, which we also produce. This tyre is fantastic in both looks and performance. Although a 100% standard road legal tyre, the Paddy Hopkirk Mini driven by Stephen Entwistle / Mark Appleton won the arduous 2019 RAC Rally of the Tests by a good margin, in conditions that included rain, sleet, snow and ice, as well as some dry! When you consider that many of their rivals were using competition tyres, their result is even the more remarkable.
Please note, although we have produced this tyre as a tubeless construction, most cars that fit this tyre with original wheels do not have the bead safety ridges of a tubeless rim and as such should be fitted with tubes. We have manufactured a better quality thicker Butyl 165/70x10 inner tube to suit for those that require them. See below.
And finally, don't worry about the low price. As with all our Blockley tyres, this is only because we sell direct to the end user, and not via the Classic and Vintage tyre wholesaler / resellers. This way we can sell the best that can be made yet at a reasonable price to the people that will be using them.
