This Blockley tyre size 30 x 3 beaded edge / clincher has a perfect period correct diamond tread pattern designed at Blockley, and built to the highest possible quality. We have made this tyre at the request of many Ford Model T owners sick of the low quality of what has been available in the last decades.
|Rim diameter||24 " (beaded edge/Clincher rim)|
|Overall width||87 mm|
|Overall diameter||792 mm|
This superb quality 30x3 tyre has been researched to have the dimensions the cars had in period. Some people think 30x3 means a diameter of 30 inches, but unbelievably this is not the case. But what is does mean is the rim diameter is 30 - 6 = 24 inches.
This authentic looking super high quality tyre should not be confused with other offerings of 30 x 3 tires by Coker (Excelsior , Firestone etc) and Wards. Blockley was persuaded to make this 30x3 size by a number of car owners and Model T specialists due to the poor quality of what is supplied from the many "Collector Hobby tyre wholesaler experts" who have had it so good for so long supplying and producing a poor product, inferior to what has gone before. But converseley these Blockley well researched authentic looking 30 x 3 cost no more than the alternatives, yet these Blockley tyres are perfection and in a different league to anything else available. A bold statement to make, but true! This is what Blockley is all about, making only the very best, because we are old car people ourselves and want decent product, whether it is tyres or inner tubes. The design of this diamond tread Blockley 30x3 tyre was made in house from scratch, with new tyre mould and tooling which incorporates many improvements over the original diamond pattern to aid longevity. This means it will work so much better and last so much longer than what owners today have been trained to accept as normal! Those days of the old car owner being forced to buy costly low grade tyres are now over! Whenever Blockley makes a tyre you will find prices with the wholesalers tumble with offers of free post and free and dixcount on bundles - but remember they are offering their same old stuff - tyres which had they been of even adequate quality, Blockley would not have been persuaded to make this 30x3 size!
Note that for later Model T model, Blockley have available a newly made super high quality 440/450x21, while for the earlier Model T front wheels the size 30x3 is also produced and available.
Please note that Blockley has also found it has needed to manufacture its own inner tubes, made as they should be and in a different league to anything Model T owners have been trained to think of as acceptable in the past few decades ! Made from butyl, thick and with metal stem, and not prone to losing air.
