This applies also to all "Nobby Tread" Tires
now in service on automobiles.
The "Nobby Tread" Tire was placed upon the market in 1909 lit was
built regardless of price competition, and built to .accomplish two purposes :
No. 1 To give American automobile owners the lowest
"cost per mile" tire that could be built. 'Jv'
No. 2 To give American automobile owners a real
. anti-skid tire.
The inherent wear-resisting quality the quantity of rubberthe quantity of
fabric the methods of construction all have been rigidly maintained in "Nobby
Tread" Tires, and maintained regardless of cost and regardless of price competition.
The result is that today, through sheer merit alone, " Nobby Tread " Tires
are the largest selling high-grade anti-skid tires in the world.
But more than this solely through their day in and day out mileage records,
" Nobby Tread" Tires have proved that they are the most inexpensive tires in the end.
Therefore, based solely on their mileage re
cords of over four years, "Nobby Tread" Tires
can be, and now are, placed on this 5,000-mile
basis of adjustment.
This applies to each and every "Nobby
Tread" Tire in service on automobiles today or
unsold in dealers' stock anywhere in the United
States, carrying our regular warranty.
