See below.....

Last week we ran out of the 145R10 tyres but we will have new stock in
10 days or so (19th Sept). We will also have stock of the wider
165/70R10 which will be the same price as both tyres cost about the same
to make. ..

I’ve run a set for 6 months or so. The grip is good and the wear rate seems better than the aquajet in my opinion. Running 145s.

Bit of a place to find, even finding the main site. But great people to deal with. Lee even missed his lunch break to fit mine while I waited

Great news that! Almost went un commented on.

165's the same price as 145's.

I can't think of another supplier who would do such a thing.

145's and 165's the same price.... Well said Mark. It's worth getting a set of 165's just to hold on to - as a sort of investment - at that price!

Minimine in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent are an official Blockley stockist.
it’s worth contacting them if you’re a bit further North.
