Equip One-Third the Cars
One-third of all new cart going out this .year
are equipped with Goodyear tires. S
About one-third of all motor car owners have
now adopted these tires.

Tire Upkeep Cut in Two
A million and a quarter of these

use. They have been tested out on
some 200,000 cars,
They were tested on our claim
that No-Rim-Cut tires cot the

No-Rim-Cttt three now far out
sell any other tire In the world.
Our output now is nearly 100,000
How They Do It
No-Rim-Cat tires end rim-cnt-ting
forever. And rim-cutting
occurs on 23 per cent of all the
old-type tires. . .
That is proved by statistics cov
ering many thousands of ruined
In addition to that, No-Rim-Cut
tires are 10 per cent over the rated
size. And 10 per cent overslse,
tinder average conditions, adds 25
per cent to the tire mileage.
So these patent tires save 23 per
cent, plus 25 per cent, on the
They save, in fact, more than
that. For No-Rim-Cut tires are

in tire making. ,
In perfecting them we tested
