This Blockley 165 R 15 is a modern designed full size "80 profile" steel belted Radial tyre, with a good speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house by Blockley. This V rated tyre, unusual in this size, reflects the higher speeds and cornering abilities our cars can now achieve.

The prototype set was tested by historic rallyist Paul Wignall on his Alfa Romeo Giulietta on the 2015 Rally of the Tests which he won outright.  These tyres, as with all Blockley radials, once scrubbed in, are truly unbelievable in the wet and dry. 

Please do remember all new tyres need scrubbing in and once scrubbed in great performance can be expected.

Suitable for all TR's from TR2-6  and for many other cars from the 1960s including Alfa Romeo, MG A and Porschs (356, 912, early 911 and 914/6).  

Every one of these tyres is inspected and checked for dynamic balance - The small painted yellow circle on the side wall can be aligned with the valve stem by the tyre fitter so they know the optimum place to put it.

A popular size typically suitable for: - 

Triumph TR2/3/4/5/6
Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Giulia
MGA
Healey 100/4
Porsche 356/912 early 911
