100% of these tyres are individually inspected which includes checking for 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. 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, so don't be fooled by thinking spending more will get a better product! Try them and be surprised, and find out why the Blockley company was started!
