The 205 R 16 M+S Blockley is the perfect tyre for a Classic Range Rover and Mercedes G Wagen. We produced this tyre after being persuaded to do so by a Range Rover enthusiast who needed something to make his pride and joy look "just right", with great handling to match. Nothing made today is like this, not even the Michelin that the Classic tyre wholesalers are now pushing so hard, which do not have the authentic look as they claim.
Since producing this tyre, both the tyre wholesalers Vintage Supplies and Longstone have gone to a lot of trouble pushing the Michelin XM+S 244 strenuously, claiming incorrectly that this Michelin "244" pattern is correct for the early Range Rovers, which is just not true. Salesmen shouldn't need to lie about their products in order to sell them. But we are pleased that they take so much attention of what Blockley produces!
In addition to the Classic Range Rover this 205R16 M+S tyre is also suitable for the 1970 to 1995 era Land Rover 90 , Land Rover 110 and Land Rover Defender. Furthermore, this 205R16 M+S tyre is also the correct fitment for Mercedes G Class (1979 - 1990) "W460" 200GE , 230G and 240GD and G Class derivatives such as the Puch G. Other vehicles requiring this 205R16 M+S are the Toyota HiLux built from 1984 onward (4WD models) plus other 4 wheel drive vehicles of the period. And 205R16 size is also useful when customers want something taller than a 215/65R16 size.
This good speed rated M+S (Mud and Snow) 205 R 16 Blockley tyre has a tread pattern and sidewall with the ideal look for the Range Rover. And as with all Blockley tyres, they are built to the highest standards that are possible, with a sidewall giving a comfortable ride.
Every single one of these tyres (as all Blockley radials) is inspected and also checked for dynamic balance. The small painted yellow circle on the side wall can be aligned with the valve stem when fitting for the optimum position on the wheel rim. We perform this additional inspection process as we are determined to supply the best possible no-compromise product.
Please note that we also make a Blockley super thick correct fitting butyl inner tube to suit, superior to anything else available, which is why we make them. This is a tube type tyre, as the XM+S tyre was in period, the reason being that if the tyre was knocked off the bead in use while off road it would not deflate. We would strongly recommend only the use of the tubes we have made to suit if you want trouble free motoring. And because the Range Rover wheels have the larger valve stem hole we supply an adapter fitted on our Blockley Superior tubes at no charge, for a perfect fit.
