This Blockley 185/70 VR 14 is a modern designed steel belted Radial tyre, with an exceptional V speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house.
This tyre is basically a wider version of the Blockley 165 R 14 and is often used by customers wanting a wider tyre with the same diameter as the "80 profile" 165R14.
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. Scrub them in and do 1000 miles - if they are not the best tyres you've driven on we will give a refund.
