This Blockley 185/70 VR 13 is a modern designed steel belted Radial tyre, with an excellent speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house. A V rated tyre available direct for the manufacturer (Blockley) for an unbelievable £85 plus tax! This is because we only sell direct to the end user and not via the "Classic" tyre wholesalers. A truly impressive tyre. Scrub these in for a little (ie drive normally for say 30 miles), do 1,000 miles on them and if they are not the best tyres you've ever driven on we will give a refund.
This tyre is basically a wider version of the 165 R 13 size (also produced by Blockley) and is often used by customers wanting a wider tyre with the same diameter as the "80 profile" 165R13.
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.
