More Than Merely A Tire
GATES TIRES are are built with one idea in view - auberb
service anH endurance. Correct materials are selected, to ac-
co.nplist these ends.
GATES TIRES have done better than 10,000 miles. Some
have run 1 5,000 miles. As near as can be determined, 8,000
is only an ordinary performance for a GATES.
Since these tires are built to attain sooerb service and en
durance, and every process of construction assures these more
mile? for less money.
BUY JUST ONE GATES let us register it keep track
of its mileage mileage yourself. Make Gates establish its repu
tation with YOU on YOUR car.' It's the logical and safe way.
