The Blockley 33 x 5 straight sided tyre (which can also be fitted to later well base 23" rims) is of a design build quality which is unsurpassed in any other brand of tyre available. Driving on this Blockley 33x5 tyre will be a total and utter revelation, compared to whatever you are used to. 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 to what was available in period, the main difference being the Blockleys are better made with materials unavailable in period. We were assisted in this 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 895x135 tyre - lay one over the tyre with a little air in it and judge for yourselves! For this reason you need to fit teh correct size Blockley tube with the Blockley tyre, which is the only reason why we make Blockley superior thick butyl inner tubes, rather than source tubes.
