The Blockley 215/70R15 is a superior quality correct period looking V speed rated tyre built on new moulds and tooling that is commonly fitted to cars such as Aston Martin V8, Jaguar XJ12 , Ferrari Daytona, some AC Cobras, Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 etc (see the many examples in list below). The ride and handling quality of the Blockleys is exceptional, in wet or dry. These Blockley 215/70R15 tyres are E Marked and DOT marked (for use in the USA).

100% of these 215/70VR15 tyres are individually inspected (as all Blockley tyres) which includes checking for balance - the small painted yellow dot on the side wall can be aligned with the valve stem by the tyre fitter so they know the optimum place to fit it. We perform this additional inspection process as we are determined to supply the best possible no-compromise product. These will be the best handling tyres you have ever driven on - do 1,000 miles or so on them and if you disagree we will refund! Our reasonable prices are only possible because we sell direct to the end user and preparers / garages, and not through the Classic tyre wholesalers and avoiding their mark ups, so don't be fooled by thinking spending more will get you a better product! Try them and be surprised, and find out why the Blockley company was started!
