I have heard of the Blockley tires on the UK Forums ( mk1 Forum / Miniform)   most everyone had good things to say .

I have never seen any on the US Side of the pond... if you want that tread pattern would be worth getting.

 Other options are limited. DOT keeps many places selling only DOT approved tires for US Roads.

No idea on the Blockley tires. I think my wife's Moke has 5x10 Revolutions.

Willie, thanks but don't like the look of the BRM wheel.
Kermy, that picture of the 5" Revolution shows a lot of negative offset, shown with a flare,
definitely sticks out from stock fender. Maybe I'll have to search for another style of wheel.
Still wonder if anyone has any thoughts on Blockley tires, wet traction, wear, etc?

Thought JBW wheels might have them but only in 6". They do have a nice BRM wheel in 4.5 that is 4 spoke. https://www.johnbrownwheels.com/product/45-x-10-brm-4x1016-4510BRM
