2 $ Cross-Rib Tread Card
Discounting the "Discount"
You don't have to be a shrewd bargainer to set the bottom price on
the new Goodyear Cross-Rib Tread Cord.
Instead of listing it at a high price, to enable the dealer to attract you
with a so-called long discount," we list it as low as we profitably can.
You can see from the figures below that its advertised price is lower
than the net price you are asked to pay for many "long discount"
tires of unknown value.
We believe the average man would rather buy tires on this frank and
open basis, and assure himself a product of recognized worth.
The new Goodyear Cross-Rib Tread Cord is made of high-grade
long-staple cotton, and it embodies the patented Goodyear method
of group-ply construction.
In design, materials and manufacture it is a representative Goodyear
product, built to safeguard the world-wide Goodyear reputation.
It has a different tread from the famous All-Weather Tread Cord
