The Blockley 710 x 90 Beaded Edge tyre was the first beaded edge tyre size that we produced, the prototype of which was tested on an 8 cylinder GP Bugatti by driving the car on a trans Alpine road trip from the UK to the Monaco Historic Grand Prix and doing the reverse journey back, followed by a Rally in France a few months later.  The levels of grip, handling (in both wet and dry) and surprisingly the longevity on this 710x90 tyre was exceptional.

Many owners of Brescia and T22 Bugattis who use their cars have now finally been able to revert back on to beaded edge tyres with total confidence by using our Blockley 710x90, and taking off those later type well base wheels (which we also produce the tyres for) that they ended up with, which compromises the delicate looks of these cars.

It is really important to note that the diameter of this Blockley 710x90 is considerably larger than any other 710x90 available elsewhere, such as Ensign, because we have made our tyres to the correct original dimensions, which look so much better on the cars they are fitted to.

The larger diameter is what this 710x90 size tyre had in period, so that is why the Blockley 710x90 has the diameter that it has - so why are the other tyre brands smaller? Either because those making them don't know, or becauase perhaps it costs less to make a smaller tyre. . .  And equally everything about our Blockley 710x90 is as perfect as can be, with a robust build and a product that can be relied upon that gives excellent mileage, which is why we made our 710x90 Blockley tyre in the first place, even though other brands were available when we started the Blockley beaded edge range.

These Blockley 710x90 Blockley tyres finally allow you to experience the delightful looks and light steering that the cars were designed for, without the trauma of continual breakdowns and unreliability, as well as the rapid wear rates assosiated with beade edge tyre use. So now is the time to go back on to the correct beaded edge wheels (we can help with this if required) and remove those later type well base rims, and enjoy the cars as they were originally designed and built. These Blockley tyres are the best beaded edge tyres ever produced, not only because they are produced to period specifications, but also by using improved materials that were unavailable at the time. Many people now even compete in races, hill climbs and rallies with these tyres, as well as having the pleasure of seeing their cars look perfect. The Blockley is a product that has no equal, and we are able to sell them at a remarkably low price because we sell direct to the end users and garages, and not through the wholesaler specialist tyre middle men.

And finally, it is important to use the thick butyl 710x90 Blockley Superior inner tubes we made for these tyres. Built on our own tooling, super thick and made from the best (and most expensive) inner tube material Butyl, so you are not continually pumping the tyres up, yet with the considerable saving in price over a Michelin tube because we are selling them without the wholesaler inbetween. The combined tyre and tube price of the Blockley is truly unbelievable value, especially when you consider that these Blockley tyres and tubes are unlike anything else you can buy!
