In case other people have been waiting for these to be back in stock, Longstone tyres got a new delivery today (the person I spoke to on the phone helped unload them). Usual disclaimers, etc.

For those of you living in the US, Lucas Classic Tires in Long Beach, CA has a fresh stock of these tires, currently offered at $159/ea. Ask for Russ.

Does anyone have any comments regarding these versus the Blockley offering?

The Blockleys are quite a bit cheaper and I like the tread pattern but are they any good?

How you going to use the car? If your going to drive it hard then suspect the CN36 will be worth the extra money, I am certainly happy with the performance of mine. I believe they made with one of the soft modern compounds so are quite grippy but have very predictable/consistent break away.

If it will be driven more gently then brockley offering might be good.

Please do tell us how brilliant they are and can we see some pictures.

A while ago a German magazine Klassik Auto Bild did an independent tyre test

I think it is pretty clear which tyres are the tyres of choice - and which are absolutely not!
