A popular fitment on the later Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, which are not on Clincehr / beaded edge tyres.
The Blockley 33 x 5 straight sided tyre is fitted to the split rim 23" wheels and can also fitted to later well base 23" rims. Like all Blockley products, our 33x5 size is of a design and build quality which is unsurpassed in any other brand of tyre available. And the low price we charge is only because we sell direct, and not via the Classic Tyre wholesalers.
Driving on this Blockley 33x5 tyre will be a total and utter revelation, compared to whatever you have used before. Our prototype set were tested on an H6 Hispano Suiza in the U.S.A, as well as aero engined monsters in the UK on road and track.
These Blockley 33x5 tyres are virtually identical looking to what was available in period, the only difference being that the Blockley tyres are better made using superior materials which were unavailable in period. Blockley was assisted with this 33x5 project by Rolls Royce Silver Ghost historian John Fasal, to ensure our Blockley 33x5 tyre was as period correct looking as possible.
Note that Blockley are also the only manufacturer producing a correct sized inner tube for the tyre size 33x5 ! For example Longstone Classic Tyres and Vintage Tyres at Beaulieu (neither of whom we have dealings with) recommend fitting a Michelin 880x120 tube in a 33x5 tyre - lay one of these inner tubes over the tyre with a little air in it and judge for yourselves! For this reason you need to fit the correct size Blockley tube with our Blockley tyre, which is the only reason why we also produce "Blockley Superior" thick butyl correct dimension inner tubes.
