30x3 beaded edge / clincher Blockley tyre, with a period correct diamond tread pattern, perfect for the era, which make the cars they are fitted to look so much better! These 30x3 tyres are built to the highest quality, with robust sidewalls and construction, and unlike anything else available for sale elsewhere. Blockley was persuaded to make this 30x3 tyre at the request of many Ford Model T owners and specialists who are fed up with what has been available from the tyre wholesalers and outlets in the last decade. 

A tyre size used on the front of the earlier Model T Fords dating between 1908 and 1917, these 30x3 tyres compliment the large range of  Ford tyre sizes we also produce. This 30x3 size also fits many "brass era" and vintage cars.

This superb quality 30x3 tyre has the correct dimensions that the 30x3 had in period. Some people think a 30x3 tyre size means the diameter should be 30 inches! But this was not the case in period when you check the factory data! The only thing it does mean is that the wheel rim diameter for the 30x3 tyre is 24 inches. Other brands of 30x3 tyres available today are made with diameters that are too small, whereas our Blockley 30x3 tyre has the correct taller diameter as it should be, another reason why customers wanted this 30x3 size making.

Our Blockley authentic tread pattern, super high quality and well researched 30x3 beaded edge tyre should not be confused with other offerings of 30x3 tires by the likes of Coker (Excelsior , Firestone etc), Wards and so on. Blockley Tyre Co. was persuaded to make this 30x3 size by a number of car owners and Ford Model T specialists, due to not being overly enamoured by what is supplied from the many "Collector Hobby tyre wholesaler experts" who have had it so good for so long, supplying what they do! Because we do not sell our Blockley tyres through these experts, Blockley can offer this superb 30x3 Clincher / beaded edge tyre for no more cost than the alternatives, while our Blockley tyres are in a different quality league to anything else available. A bold statement to make!

This is what Blockley is all about, making only the very best, because we are car people ourselves and require 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 the many improvements over the original diamond pattern tyre that existed,  to aid longevity. This means the Blockley 30x3 clincher / beaded edge will work so much better and last so much longer than what owners today have been trained to accept as normal! The days of the car owner being compromised in their choices tyres is now over!  But remember whenever Blockley makes a new tyre size you will find the wholesalers start slashing prices with offers of free post, extra discount on bundles, free tubes or whatever else special offers they can come up with. But also remember they are offering their same old stuff - product which had it been adequate, Blockley would not have been asked and persuaded to make this 30x3 size!

At Blockley we also found that it was necessary to manufacture our own higher quality inner tubes, made as they should be and again in a different league to anything Model T owners and others brass era car owners have been trained to think of as acceptable in the past few decades ! Made from butyl (the best inner tube material), correctly dimensuioned and thick, with a nickel plated metal valve stem.

Note that Blockley also produces the 30x31/2 tyre size, with this same period correct diamond tread pattern. And for later Ford Model T's we also produced a super high quality 440/450x21 which you will also be very impressed with.
