An additional 550 x 18 Blockley Tyre in our range. Designed by us to be visually correct for cars dating from circa 1935-1955. Ideal for cars such as Alfa Romeo 6C 2500, Derby Bentley, Pre and post war SS Jaguar, Bugatti T57 and many Delage / Delahaye and so on.
Please note we also make a 3 stud pattern tyre in this size, at the same list price. Initially this A6C tyre cost much more, but as we sold enough to recoup the mould and testing costs we reduced the price.
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 particularly soft) 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.
