The Blockley 215/70R15 is a superior quality correct period looking V speed rated tyre built on new moulds and tooling that is commonly fitted to Aston Martin V8, Jaguar XJ12 , Ferrari Daytona, AC Cobras, Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 etc (see the many examples in list below). The ride and handling quality of the Blockleys is exceptional, in wet or dry. These Blockley 215/70R15 tyres are E Marked and DOT marked (for use in the USA).

100% of these tyres are individually 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. These will be the best handling tyres you have ever driven on. Our reasonable prices are only possible because we sell direct to the end user and preparers / garages, and not through the Classic tyre wholesalers, so don't be fooled by thinking spending more will get a better product! Try them and be surprised, and find out why the Blockley company was started!

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
