The confusion "of 'the terms "quick j
detachable" and "demountable" with re
" ' "^.gard to rims is not;
I unusual, even to the
[motor ' car owner
is well up on
-. motor terms. -This i
faict^ was 'brought to light recently by
the; receipt' of a number of letters by
the Firestone tire and rubber company
from seekers for this knowledge. Jn
speaking of these terms C. C. Elchel
berger, manager of the local branch of
the Firestone company, said yesterday:
"The quick detachable rim provides
for quick removal of a tire, usually by
removing a' locking ring which forms
one side of the clinch or retaining de
vice of the rim. -This requires defla
tion of the tire ' before' removing and
pumping up the tire after It Is applied.
The demountable rim provides for. quick
removal of both tire and rim from the
wheel without taking the tire off the
rim. This does away with time. lost in
pumping up. as extra tires are carried
already inflated on .extra rims. It is
also much quicker in operation.
- "The quick detachable demountable
rims are a combination- of the' features
of both. These rims [do not require a
new/ set of quick detachable tires, even
though the car was iformerly equipped
with the'old style clincher tires. By
drilling holes in the quick detachable
demountable rims they can be used/with
short stem stay bolts until the old
clincher tires are used up.' . When
purchasing mew tiresqulck detachables
will be wanted in order to do away
with the stay bolts. The holes of the
rim should then be plugged up so that
moisture will not get into the tire.". -\u25a0.
