A Radn ITonetho Tire Made by
the Racine One-Cure Wrapped
25 MORE MILEAGE
You might as well get this 25 more mileage by using
RACINE HORSESHOE TIRES
The fabric, made of layers of Sea Island Cotton, is extremely flexible.
That is the secret of excess mileage and fewer Blow-Outs with
RACINE HORSESHOE TIRES
Beyond a good fabric to insure a good tire, the tread must match up
for quality. A close examination of Racine Horseshoe Fabric Con
struction is the best proof of their dependability.
