No Petty Saving
No petty savings have made Goodyear
tires outsell every other.
Rim-cut ruin, which we save wrecks 23
per cent of all old-type tires
10 per cent oversize, under average con
ditions, adds 25 per cent to the tire mileage.
And those are but part of the savings.
A few years ago, three other
tires combined outsold the
Goodyears by 70 times over.
From thati point Goodyears
have quickly jumped to the top
most place in Tiredom.
And last year's sales by far
exceeded our previous 12'years
This has been done in this
day of j odometers, when men
keep track of tire mileage.
And today's position comes
when men have used two nril
liqn Goodyear tires.
Can't you see that No-Rim-Cut
tires, in some way, must
give amazing mileage?
