No War Tax to Pay!
All kinds of tires are now advancing, and .vith the
manufacturers advancing their prices and the jobbers the
same, they are coming to the dealers at a higher rate.
Many have advanced the price from 15 to ISo. They
will go higher soon. All dealers must follow the trend in
Just at this time we have a good sized stock which
we bought while the prices were lower, and for a limited
time will offer them at the prevailing prices, and pay the
war tax. We, like the others, will have to have to have
higher prices in the near future.
Many people are needing new tires, and will want
more with the coming of Spring. Better lay in your needs
immediately, for there is no guarantee on the present
prices, as some dealers have already advanced. We are
carrying the following in stock in most of the sizes:
FIRESTONE, GOODRICH, FISK, GOOD
YEAR AND CORNHUSKER!
These tires are all guaranteed for 6,000 miles u&e, and as
all rubber goods are advancing, it would be the act of pru
dence to get what you need before the advance, which is
sure to come, and that within a very short time.
