The Blockley 165R13 is a full size "80 profile" (165/80R13) steel belted Radial tyre, with a excellent speed rating and good looking period correct tread pattern, designed in house and supplied at exceptionally good value. This 165R13 tyre size is often used as the radial equivalent of a cross ply 5.60x13 or 5.90x13 tyre size, while it is also identical to the tyre size sold in period called 165R300 which was a metric way of saying the same thing. And these 165R13 Blockleys at £83 each (plus vat) work out £120 less eachcompared to a Michelin XAS, or as good as £500 less on a set of four! Our fantastic quality high speed rated Blockleys are only so competitively priced because we sell direct to the end user, and not through the Classic tyre wholesalers. These Blockleys are the best quality tyres, see guarantee below, butjust sold at a reasonable price. These Blockley 165R13 tyres are E Marked and DOT marked for use in the USA.

We guarantee that if these Blockley tyres are not the best that a customer has driven on (scrub in for 30 miles or so then drive 1,000 miles on them) and we will refund. 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 part of supplying the best possible no-compromise product.

Note that the same diameter but wider version of a 165R13 tyre is a 185/70R13 tyre size, for those that want a wider version of this 165R13 (ie 165/80R13) size, and Blockley produces the wider version 185/70VR13 size also.
