A wider version of the 145R10 tyre (a tyre size that we also produce), made for the earlier classic Mini using 10" wheels. These stunning looking Blockleys offer great handling using the steel belted construction. The Blockley 165/70R10 tyres are E Marked and DOT marked (for use in the USA).

The 165/70R10 size is a wider version of the (80 profile) 145R10 Austin Mini tyre size, both these tyre sizes having the same diameter. This tyre is fantastic in both looks and performance. Although a 100% standard road legal tyre for everyday road use, the Paddy Hopkirk Mini prepared by Mini Sport and driven by Stephen Entwistle / Mark Appleton won the arduous 2019 RAC Rally of the Tests by a large margin against stiff opposition, 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, this remarkable result shows just how good these authentic period correct looking Blockley tyres are. And far from being worn out they would be good for the event all over again! We believe the Blockley is the best 165/70R10 tyre ever made.

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 (including a metal stem version as was used on the Mini Coopers originally), for those that require them. See below.

And finally, don't worry about our low price compared to the huge prices of some other tyres available, such as the Dunlop Aquajet (which costs more than doubleat £162 inc vat) or an Avon (which costs some 3 times as much!). As with all our Blockley tyres, we sell direct to the end user, and not using the services of the Classic and Vintage tyre wholesalers, so the Blockley price does not need to include their comissions. This way we can sell the best that can be made to the people who will actually be using them, and at a realistic price (circa £300 a set inclusive of vat), or little more than what you have to pay for a Camac type tyre.
