Popular on many cars such as Jensen, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguars and Ford Mustangs.
We have never understood why other manufacturers sell the 205/70R15 size at such excessive prices. The Classic tyre wholesalers have trained customers to being "ripped off" because this size is basically a slightly wider version of a 185VR15 tyre size. 205/70R15 is a popular size and costs little more to produce than a 185R15 size, which is why Blockley charge little more for this 205/70WR15 tyre. This demonstrates that Blockley does not exist for the same reasons as the other Classic car tyre brands. So do not be concerned at the low price of our 205/70VR15 W speed rated Blockley tyre. It is only because we sell direct to the end user, and not via the "Classic" tyre wholesaler middlemen. This superb tyre represents incredible value.
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 position to place it. We perform this additional inspection process as part of supplying the best possible no-compromise product. Scrub them in and drive 1,000 miles on them - if you are not convinced these Blockleys are the best tyres you've ever driven on (ride, handling, steering etc.) we offer a refund.
