Identical to the 500 x 19 Blockley but with a slightly smaller diameter, we have dual marked this tyre 475/500 x 19, something we don't like doing because dual marking is purely marketing 'bull' because you cannot have two tyre sizes as one tyre. However, our competitors like doing this, so in this instance we have had to follow suit. This is a genuine 475 x 19 tyre, it is particularly good on the rear of a T37 Bugatti when running 450 x 19 on the front.
All Blockley Cross (Bias)ply tyres are made to fit the original rim widths, something other manufacturers have forgotten about over time. In addition they are genuine tyres for road use, with a robust sidewall and covering, capable of being 'curbed' as you would expect from a tyre suitable for road use. The Dunlop triple stud pattern in period was a problematic one, which resulted in it being superseded. We liked the period look of the triple stud tyre, so we re-designed all features of this pattern to make it work correctly without wearing out in no time. The compounding of all our cross (Bias) ply tyres conform to FIA Appendix K which uses Dunlop 204 compound as its reference hardness. This same Blockley tyre, surprisingly, has no equal having won many thousands of races and other competitions as well as Concours d'Elegance events, including class wins and overall best of show at Pebble Beach!.
This is why we coined the term Road Race for tyres when we started. Which has been copied (as have many of our tyres) by the classic tyre wholesalers who we do not sell through. So beware of imitations!
All Blockley tyres are made with new moulds and tooling and a high level of quality control, resulting in a product of unsurpassed quality, roundness and conformity.
