This fantastic, well handling superb quality tyre is the only 30 x 3 1/2 available with the correct dimensions.
This authentic looking super high quality tyre should not be confused with other offerings of 30 x 3 1/2 tyres from the likes of Coker etc. We have been persuaded to make this size by a number of people and Model T specialists because of the poor quality of what is supplied from the so called tyre experts who have had it so good for so long producing a poor product, inferior to what has gone before. These Blockleys may cost a little more, but they are perfection and in a different league. This is what Blockley is all about, making only the very best. And apart from a design based loosely on period pictures, with improvements we knew would considerably increase the tyre life and handling, these Blockley 30 x 3.5 will work so much better and last so much longer than what you have been trained to accept as normal. Remember how much more cost effective a tyre is if, apart from teh other advantages, it lasts so much longer as well.
Note that for later model T's Blockley manufacture a newly made unbelievable quality 440/450x21, while for the earlier T's the size 30x3 is also well advanced.
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 !Blockley beaded edge tyres allow you to experience the delightful looks and light steering that the cars were designed for, without the trauma of continual breakdowns and unreliability, which is why so many have converted to more modern well base rims. These Blockley tyres are the best beaded edge tyres ever produced, not only because they are produced to period specifications, but also by using improved materials that were unavailable at the time.
