We incorporated a kerbing strip on this tyre because this 185/70x15 is a popular fitment for a Porsche 911, running Fuchs alloy wheels. Alloy wheels prior to 1968 are not tubless type, so please check whether you should also need inner tubes.
All new tyres need scrubbing in and once scrubbed in you will not find a better tyre! As with all Blockley radial tyres, we guarantee that if they are not the best tyres you have ever driven on we will give a refund.
This is a truly impressive tyre in both wet and dry conditions, and its construction with twin steel belts means that the handling is still superb even when your engine is cantilevered over the back of your chassis as on a Porsche 911 ! And this tread pattern is what teh 911 left teh factory with. You will be impressed.
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.

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
