"Horse Sense Economy
MOTORISTS who carefully select an
expensive tire and then "economize"
on tubes are "saving at the spigot and
wasting at the bung-hole."
When an "inexpensive," leaky tube ruins
a $20 or $30 casing, it becomes an extrav
agance. Diamond Tubes, made in either Gray or
Red rubber, are "horse-sense" economy. We
could have made them cheaper and sold
them more readily years ago. But now we
have the permanent business of thousands
of motorists who, after costly experiment
with others, insist upon Diamond Tubes.
