|Rim width (recommended)||5"|
A cross ply tyre suitable for cars such as C Type, D type Jaguars, Maserati 300S, Front tyres for Lister Jaguar and many sports racing Ferrari's. The Blockley is a genuine road legal tyre offering superb handling and ride, which can also be used for competition.
Note that the alternative to a 6.00x16 cross ply tyre size is our 185VR16 radial tyre, and many use this radial size on cars such as XK Jaguars and the like, but for any sportscar we would suggest our high quality 6.00x16, because they work well and look so period!
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. And finally dont be concerned at what may appear a low price on these superb 600x16 Blockleys - it is only because we sell direct to the end user or garages / restoration companies and as such avoid the mark ups of the Classic tyre wholesaler types.
