This Blockley 185 VR 15 is a modern designed full size "80 profile" steel belted Radial tyre, with an exceptional speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house.
This full profile V rated 185 15 was a year and a half in development during which time Dunlop finally V rated their tyre, slashed the price by a third and ensured that we would have difficulty selling this size when it was made.
Despite this onslaught we survived and our tyre has proven its worth with its unbelievable handling and longevity. Its wet weather capabilities are also second to none and from a styling perspective this tyre is far more authentic on a 1960s Jaguar than the Dunlop Aquajet which is a much later design (produced on very old tooling).
This tyre equates to a 185/80
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.
