This White Wall Blockley 185 R 14 is a modern designed full size "80 profile" steel belted Radial tyre, with a good H speed rating (130mph) and period correct tread pattern, designed in house.
We were encouraged to produce this size by HKT Reifen in Germany to meet a requirement from the Mercedes Benz Pagoda Club chairman, who wanted a high quality tyre. Not only were the alternatives very expensive, the performance was not overly impressive. For this reason we produce this tyre in whitewall. It is also available in standard black at a lower price. It is interesting to observe that since the availability of the Blockley 185HR14 whitewall tyres, the price of the Michelin 185x14 whitewall dropped considerably!
These Blockleys are the best tyres you will ever drive on. If you are not in agreement after trying them for say 1,000 miles, we will refund you. This guarantee applies to all Blockley radial tyres. These Blockley 185R14 tyres are E Marked and DOT marked (for use in the USA).
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 which is the optimum position for the two. We perform this additional inspection process as we are determined to supply the best possible no-compromise product - you will not observe this on any other Classic car tyre, no doubt due to the extra expense this process involves . . .
Note that in period a full diameter (also called 80 profile) tyre did not have the "/80" listed in the tyre size, because all radial tyres were full size. It was only much later as lower profile tyres started to become more common that many tyres started having the full profile marked on the sidewall. So 185R14 would also be referred to as 185/80R14, which both mean the same thing. Our Blockley tyres are marked 185R14 on the sidewall because this is the authentic numbering as it would have been originally.
