This was built initially for the Ferrari 166 which started life on a 550 x 15 and ended on a 590 x 15 so we made this compromise size to suit both. Good on many cars such as Austin Healey's.
Please note that this tyre is made to L section dimensions and therefore may be wider than you expect so please check the dimensions listed.
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. We wanted a suitable mid 1930's - 50's look. The compounding of all our cross (Bias) ply tyres conform to FIA Appendix K which uses Dunlop 204(not a particularly soft compound) compound as its reference hardness.
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.
