This Blockley 185/70 VR 15 is a modern designed steel belted Radial tyre, with an excellent speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house.
185/70R15 size is a wider version of the 80 profile (ie full size) Blockley 165VR15
We incorporated a kerbing strip on this tyre because this 185/70x15 is a popular fitment for a Porsche 911, running Fuchs alloy wheels. Alloy wheels prior to 1968 are not tubless type, so please check whether you should also need inner tubes.
All new tyres need scrubbing in and once scrubbed in you will not find a better tyre! As with all Blockley radial tyres, we guarantee that if they are not the best tyres you have ever driven on we will give a refund.
This is a very impressive tyre and its construction with twin steel belts means that the handling is still superb which you especially need when your engine is cantilevered over the back of your chassis!
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.
