This Blockley 165 R 13 is a authentic designed full size "80 profile" (165/80 R 13) steel belted Radial tyre, with a good speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house and supplied at exceptionally good value. Especially when you think the Blockleys are each £120 less than a Michelin XAS, or as good as £500 less on a set of four ! Our fantastic Blockleys are only so competitively priced because we sell direct to the end user, and not through the Classic tyre wholesaler companies.
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.
