This Blockley 185 VR 15 is a modern designed full diameter "80 profile" steel belted Radial tyre, with an exceptional speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house.
This full profile V rated 185x15 was a year and a half in development, during which time Dunlop panicked and finally V rated their 185R15 Aquajet tyre, and Vintage Tyre Supplies also slashed the price by a third to ensure that we would have difficulty selling this size when it was made.
Despite this onslaught we survived and this tyre has proven its worth with its unbelievable handling and longevity. Its wet weather capabilities is also second to none from a styling perspective. This tyre is far more authentic looking on a 1960s Jaguar than the Dunlop Aquajet which is a much later design, which today is made on very old tooling.
This tyre size 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.
