Any first-grade tire should be built as well as a tire of that type can be built. Cord Tires cost more than Fab rics, and arc worth the extra price. Men who figure cost per mile are coining to Cord Tires. But any tire, Cord or Fabric, should be built for the utmost ser vice which that type can give. Some Men Over-Pay Some men pay extra prices, ex pecting extra mileage. Some pay under prices for an under-grade, and hope to save in that way. Both arc wrong. There may be exceptions there are always freak tires. But countless tests have proved that Miller Tires at Miller prices, on the Average, give the lowest cost per mile. And Miller Tires, both Cord and Fab ric, cost about the standard prices. Tread Patented Center tread smooth with suc tion cup, for firm boldonwcUtphalt. tide treads meth like cog ia dirt. We Insist on This There arc three requirements which Miller Tires must meet. First, they must average greater mileage, type for type, than any rival tire. f We constantly prove this. Eight machines in our factory run two tires each under rear-tire conditions. Each tire is run 650 miles daily by running extra-fast. Won Over 21 Makes The Eldorado Stage Co. of Lo Angele totted 21 other mukea agalmt Millers on 12.pasenger Packard Duiei, weighing 8,600 pound loaded. In thli (upreme tett Millars won by long odd, onlong-dittance uniformity. Here we constantly compare the best other tires with Millers. Also in ceaseless road tests. Thus, day by day and week by week, we are guarding the Miller supremacy. Every Tire Signed Wc insist that Millers must be uniform. Each tire is signed. A record is kept of the maker, the in- spector and the process. If a tire comes back for adjust ment wc learn the reason. If the workman is at fault he is penalized. If the inspector overlooked a flaw he is held responsible. If any proc ess or material is at fault, wc cor rect it. After years of this checking we've attained uniform tires. There are whole large cities from which not a Miller Tire came back last year. Treads Must Endure Miller Treads, by our standard, must outwear the balance of the tire. Wc have attained a tread which outwears rivals by 25 per cent. Every day our tread stock is vul canized, then tested, in our labora tory. Wc permit no variation. Not a single Miller Tire with these new-grade treads has ever come back with the tread gone. Not 20,000 Miles Countless reports come to us on Miller Cord Tires showing 20.000 to 28,000 miles of service. And talc3 of that kind arc told everywhere, we Jcarn. But mileage depends on condi tions on size, care, load and road. Millers are uniform, but thoy aro not used under uniform conditions. In our factory tests we average 15,000 mHcs on Cords. But a Miller Tire will outlast almost always anj lire that you place opposite, no matter what it costs. Compare them under like conditions, and si- what mileage modern tires can give You will gain ar:v criterion, When you buy a r.e. car insist on Miller Tires. Twentv cur makers now supply them and .'..ere is no extra charge. THE MILLER RUDDER CO., Akion, Obla milierTi Sv fg .
