The 880x120 size was also referred to in period as 35x5. Many British cars that were sold new to the 'Colonies' were fitted with this talle 880 x 120 size to increase 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 4 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 per tyre). Please note that it is imperative that customers also use the correct Blockley inner tube with the tyres, because only Blockley manufacture the correct fitting superior quality inner tubes, whereas the Wholesaler suppliers sell you the same tube for whatever tyre size you ask for, and tell you that is okay because of the brand name.
These Blockley tyres are the best beaded edge tyres ever produced, researched and built from scratch with new made moulds and tooling, with the tyres tested on our own cars by ourselves. Thee Blockleys are produced to period specifications with good sidewalls and robust construction, in addition to which using improved materials that were unavailable at the time is why these Blockleys are the best beaded edge ever made. A truly wholesome product, unlike everything else available which is in our opinion "made for profit". The Blockley range of beaded edge tyres allows you to experience the delightful looks and light steering that the cars were designed around, without the trauma and unreliability of the products supplied by the Classic Tyre wholesalers, which is unfortunately why so many have been forced away from beaded edge and on to more modern wheels and fatter tyres on the advice of these so called "experts".
