WHY ARE THEY SO POPULAR?
The world over, more people ride on Good
year Tires than on any other kind.
There h only one reason for this unexampled
Goodyear Tires are better tires.
They deliver the maximum mileage at low
cost per tire mile.
They go farther and last longer, give greater
satisfaction and less trouble, and continually'
set new records for real economy.
They have a wearing quality that justifies
the world-wide association of Goodyear and
They are powerful, sure-footed and strong.
They are backed, everywhere, by the same
standard Gcodyear Service that is furnished
in Hawaii by your local Goodyear Dealer.
