This Blockley 165 HR 400 is a modern designed full size steel belted Radial tyre, with a good speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house.
We made this 165HR400 tyre so there could be a proper speed rated and infinitely better handling tyre than what was available, because something a lot more wholesome has been needed for some decades. Having a Lancia Flaminia Zagato myself pushed me to commit to this unusual size. Since starting this project Pirelli also have produced this size with the same speed rating, but with the diameter too small! These Blockleys will be the best 165R400 you have ever driven on and come with the usual Blockley radial tyre guarantee to scrub them in and if you are not overjoyed in the next 1000miles we will offer a full refund. Anyone used to using the 165R400 size is in for a nice surprise!
Please note that as per original period specification this tyre is a tubed type, just as the 165R400 size was in period, so you will need to fit a correct fitting inner tube - see below.
