?re are the reasons:
No other tires in the world are made
under conditions so favorable to the greatest pos?
sible tire durability.
In no other tires is there combined the tire
knowledge, skill and experience of four corps of
master tire builders.
In United States Tires only is the motorist
protected by a four-factory "check" against de?
fects of any and every kind.
The tremendous facilities of the
United States Tire Company are
devoted exclusively to the manu?
facture of superior grade tires.
And the avowed purpose of the
Company (a purely selfish pur?
pose) is to build tires that will
positively and appreciably reduce
the season's tire bills for motor?
ists who use them.
Mark that word season's.
It is your season's expense, and
not the purchase price, that de?
termines how much you actually
pay per tire.
Don't overlook that fact for a
single minute.
The more experience you have
had in tire-buying the more fully
you know that last costs are the
real costs, and the less apt are
you to be influenced by the "cost
less" argument
You know?just as the makers of
United States Tires know?that
the stronger the tire the longer its '
life, and the lower its per-mile cost
And it ought not to be difficult
for you to believe that four im?
mense factories, working as a unit
are better able to put strength and
wear into tires than any one fac?
tory could be expected to pufrinto
them.
Take your tire question seriously,
and select the tires that your beat
business judgment tells you are
most certain to give you the big
gestmileage return for yourmoney.
The tires that can do this are the
cheapest tires you can buy, regard?
less of first cost
United States Tires offer you in
a single tire a combination of the
strongest features of four world
famous brands.
