What They Ended
Note what these tires have ended.
Rim-cutting has been made impossible.
The oversize has ended overloading.
And now we end skidding without, at the same
time, giving a short-lived tire.
That's why Goodyears far outsell all others.
That's why last year's sales exceeded our previous
12 years put together.

This Is How
Statistics show that 23 per cent

The 10 per cent oversize, under
average conditions, adds 25 per

The>e savings are actual. Ter.s

Now we have a double-thick
non-skid. An extra tread, made of
very tough rubber, vulcanized on?

A tread with deep-cut blocks,
immensely t nduring.
A tread withcountlessedgesand
angles, insuring a bulldog grip.
And a tread whose projections
spread out at the base, so the
strain is distributed. The lack of
that feature has made non-skids
Just compare it. You can see
that we have the ideal winter tread.
