Why We Changed to Red Tires
And Why You Should. 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.
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. J national convention.
