This Blockley 155 R 15 is a Blockley designed full size "80 profile" steel belted Radial tyre, with a good speed rating and period correct tread pattern, designed in house. Originally produced to fit Alfa Romeo Guilietta 750 / 101 as fitted by the factory (although many owners fit our 165 VR 15 ). This 155 R 15 size is also perfect for the original Volkswagen Beetle where the owner wants something better than what they are used to.  Our Volkswagen customers were amazed that a tyre with such a good load rating was finally available for their cars. 

These Blockley 155R15 tyres are E Marked and DOT marked (for use in the USA)

We also produce this tyre in a white wall version.

This Blockley 155HR15 tyre is the radial equivalent of the old cross ply size 5.50x15.

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. We perform this additional inspection process as we are determined to supply the best possible no-compromise product.

- Lotus Elite

- VW Beetle

- Alfa Romeo Spider Junior 1300 , Spider Junior 1600

- Alfa Romeo Giulietta  , Alga Romeo pre 1969 Giulia

The oil present in new tyres can cause the stripe to intially discolour this process usually continues until the tyre has completed 2500-3000 miles.  To help you combat this it is strongly recommended that you use our whitewall cleaner that can be purchased from our store
