Too Four years ago we tried red rubber as a tougher tire material than gray rubber. Empires are the first and only all red tires. Empire Reds simply put it all over gray tires even our own in service and satisfaction. So we switched altogether to Reds, knowing that we can give you a tire of greater mileage. But Empire prices are practically the same as last year. moire ires Wear Longest Other makers have caught the red idea, too, and you can get all sorts of combinations. But don't let color blind you to service. We make Empire Reds for wear that is the significance of the color. They dress up your car, too, but that is incidental. Adjustments are made on the 5,000 mile basis. You know that "Peerlew" Rrr) Inner Tubes cive the most service, and we use the same quality of tough red rubber in Empire Casings. gteulrr than that of Madison Square . mauler und uprcchcs will be made by Garden, and every available foot of Republican leudora and dclcgatea to the wilt be tued.
