This Blockley 165 VR 15 is a modern designed full size "80 profile" steel belted Radial tyre, with a good speed rating and lovely period correct tread pattern, designed in house. Our Blockley 165R15 was the first V rated tyre in this size available in modern times, with other brands such as Pirelli and Michelin following suit recently, at their vastly inflated "brand name" prices! Nothing available will match what we produce.
The prototype set was tested by historic rallyist Paul Wignall on his Alfa Romeo Giulietta on the 2015 Rally of the Tests (Pirelli Challenge) which he won outright. These tyres, as with all Blockley radials, once scrubbed in (ie driven on normally for say 30 miles), are truly unbelievable in the wet and dry and we know have no equal. The low price of this tyre is only because we sell our products direct and not through the Classic tyre wholesalers, which means we can supply you the best product at the lowest price, benefitting the actual end user rather than the middle man. We make tyres at Blockley because we are car people ourselves with great cars and use the products we make, which is why all Blockley products (tyres, tubes and bands) are a no compromise perfect product.
Use them for 1,000 miles or so and if they are not the best tyre you've ever driven on we will give a refund.
Suitable for many cars from the 1960s including Alfa Romeo, MG A and Porsches (356, 912, early 911 and 914/6) and so on. Below are listed some other models we know of.
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 we are determined to supply the best possible no-compromise product.
