The quality of Goodyear Tires, the value
they represent,' the service you can depend
on them to give, hark back directly to
these two essentials to Goodyear pur
pose, and to Goodyear ability.
Quality valueservice' aren't these the
sum of your desire in a motor car tire?
You will find them, in profitable and sat
isfying measure, in every Goodyear Tire.
Whether you measure tire virtue in
mjies, monins, or money.
Whether you buy Goodyear 'Fabric Tires,
or Goodyear Cords.
Each represents the highest accomplish
ment in its class. Each leads in its field.
The difference in price is due entirely to a
difference in building cost. The Cords
cost more to build, and- they wear longer.
In either case, the money you spend buys
100 per cent value.
Every Goodyear product is built and mar
keted on that basis.
