Blockley Tires (Tyres)

Post by SurveyKing » Thu Apr 22, 2021 9:48 pm

I am thinking about getting a set of 30 x 3.5 for my 24 Touring. They quoted me a price of around $1,050 for s set of four shipped to Texas. Before ordering, I would love to hear first from anyone who has used them on there Ts and what they thought of them. Thanks

I intend to try them when my current tires are finished. The fronts (30 x 3) for non-demountables just became available.

Did Seamus get set up to sell these yet or is he still working on it?

The last I heard, I think he was stymied by some kind of shipping problem caused by the pandemic.

My Tyres and 100% Butyl Heavy Duty Tubes are in transit. I believe these will be the last set of tyres I’ll by for my Model T’s

I delivered a set with the heavy duty tubes to a mate, but they have not been fitted yet. I love the tread pattern.
Have another 8 to pick up as soon as I can get there.

Blockley and I have been trying to set something up with tires, but container shipping and pallet shipping has tripled according to CEO of Blockley since the start of the pandemic. We were trying to get a few dozen tubes shipped over since all the US dealer are out of metal stemmed tubes. I have not given an update on the situation because we have not progressed yet. Julian (CEO of Blockley) and I communicate through emails about once or twice every couple of weeks, neither of us wants to pay the phone bill. When we have something going, I will be sure to post about it because I will have inventory to move!

That's great to hear, both for the 30x3 1/2's and the x3's... impatiently waiting! --lol--

I have 2 30 x 3½" Blockley on the rear axle of my '14 touring. Got them last year. So far looks good. Will keep you posted!
