This Blockley 235/60 VR 13 is a modern designed steel belted Radial tyre, with an exceptional speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house.
This tyre size has been unavailable for more than 25 years, until it became available from The Blockley Tyre Company again.
We were persuaded to design and manufacture this size by HKT Reifen in Germany, because their friend Walter Röhl needed this original size and specification tyre for his Opel Ascona rally car which he wanted to refurbish and use again. After Blockley produced the prototypes Walter gave them a good testing, after which we went into production.
This is also a correct size for the big Fords
Early Capri and Escort Xpac Mk1, RS 2000, Chevette, Opel and so on. Note that this 13" tyre size will fit a rim width of up to 9 inches.
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.
