TRUCK TIRE CARE
. Joe Sine of Goodyear Company Givei
Some Advice on How to In
crease the Mileage.
CAREFUL DRIVING IS HELP
"It's remarkable how tha number of
motorists who want to know how to
take the best car of their tires Is In
creasing," say Joe M. Dine, branch
. manager of tha Goodyear Tire and Rub
ber company. "It's aapeelally gratifying
to note tha growing army of motorists
vwho actually do care for their tires, who
: follow Instructions, watch tlra perform
' ance. maintain proper pressure, attend
.'to small Injuries In time, and thus
- greatly reduce their cost per mile of
', service. The campaigns of education
conducted by tire companies along thla
line have borne fruit, and motorists ara
.better satisfied and tbelr relatione with
the man who sells them thir Urea are
much more pleasant.
"Just now Goodyear Is carrying tha
same kind of a campaign to truck own
ers, Showing how tiro care makes tire
mileage and reduces tire cost. Our serv
ice department has Issued a series of
nine bulletins on truck tlra conservation.
These point out avoidable sources of tire1
trouble and show how remarkable tlra
mileage Is often obtained. Tha bulletin
ara Illustrated and show the before and
after situation vividly and graphically.
Car tracks, for Instance, quickly de
molish truck tires. When a truck Is run
in the track Just a narrow"-edge of a
tire rests on tha rail and carries the
whole load. Tha answer la easy. In the
case of dual Urea the wearing effect is
mora pronounced, becausa the narrow
part of a tlra beating on the rail carries
weight Intended to be distributed over
"Rough roads should be taken more
slowly than good ones. Avoid the ruts.
Give your tires consideration.
"Trim the edges of small cuts. ' Don't
leave little flaps of rubber hanging, for
If you do they'll develop Into long tears
and ruin the tire. If trimmed smoothly,
they will not grow.
"Keep wheels aligned. When they're
not, there's a grind that often wears a
tlra aa much In a thousand miles aa It
would wear In 10.000 miles with proper
alignment. Trucks cost money and truck
tires cost money, too. The better the tlra
performance the lower the cost of truck
upkeep. It is easy to see how- the truck
Industry Is going to grow. Goodyear
wants to do all It can' to make tha tire
part of truck operation economical and
a satisfaction to the owner. Our con
servation bulletins', wa believe, will help
mightily, whether tha man who reads
them used Goodyears er not"
Billy Knipper is
Wager Winner in
. Driving Saxon Six
William P. (Billy) Knipper of Roch-1
ester, N. T., former automobile racing
star, recently won a wager by driving a
stock model Saxon six touring car from
Rochester to New York City and return,
S47 mtles, In thirty-five hours and eigh
The wager was with two prospective
customers, both of whom accompanied
Knipper throughout tha day-and-night
trip. The wager was made to tha effect
that the Saxon could go from Rochester
to New Tork City and back to thirty-six
hours. No allowance was made for
stops, such as replenishing with gaso
line and oil or time for meals.
Knipper took op the challenge and
started out without a relief driver or
mechanic. There waa no sleep on the
journey. The longest stop was twenty
five minutes at Columbus Circle. New'
The average speed recorded by Knlp
pers Saxon was twenty-four mtles an
hour throughout the sfl-mtle day-and-night
run, part, of which .was through
heavy rains. Omitting time required for
meals and refilling wlh gasoltns and oil,
Knipper made better 'than this average.
Tha ear traveled throughout at tha
rata of twenty miles to ths gallon of
gasoline end 2M mtles to tha quart of
oil. It required ' no attention for ' me
chanical troubles and only one stop was
made fof punctures. ' ' ' ' "
