Many British cars that were sold new to the 'Colonies' were fitted with 880 x 120 size tyres to increase the ground clearance over the standard 820 x 120. Of course many cars are designed with this 880 x 120 as standard. The Blockley 880 x 120 really is something special and was used in 2 successive Goodwood Members meetings on the 1916 twin cam 4.9L Indianapolis Sunbeam. It was also used on the 200hp 21.5 litre Blitzen Benz at the same event SF Edge Trophy Race. This is just a taster of how good these tyres are when fitted with the correct Blockley inner tubes (One tube size per tyre).
These Blockley tyres allow you to experience the delightful looks and light steering that the cars were designed for, without the trauma and unreliability of what is available from the Classic Tyre wholesalers, which is why so many have converted to more modern well base rims. 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.
