MY CAR DO 75?" You
have asked y ourself that question. Many
cars on the road today can be pushed to
75. Some will go even faster. All the
newer cars will go at least 60 ... Every
owner does not want to speed, but he
wants a reserve of speed—to know what
his motor will do in an emergency. And
therein lies one great danger.
The ROAD may be smooth,
open and beckoning for speed, but be
fore his foot presses on the gas the driv
er must ask himself what every racing
driver asks: “Will my tires stand the
/ At ANY speed above 40 miles
an hour, a tire failure is not merely in
convenient— it is a rendezvous with
death. If the motor fails to make the
speed, nothing happens. If the tires fail
to make the speed, every tiling happens.
The real question is: “Will my tires
do 75?”
Reserve engine power is
perilous—unless there is reserve tire
power. Firestone Tires always have re
serve power because Firestone designs
and builds them well in advance of
automobile requirements. Firestone
design and construction made practical
the speeds of today.
Firestone originated the bal
loon tire in 1922 and offered it to the
public a year later. Developing the bal
loon made necessary a new tire con
struction—lighter, more flexible, yet
tougher. The new tire required a new
flexible tread. When factory and road
tests were finished and a tire built
worthy of the name Firestone, a set
was fitted to the car of a famous auto
mobile designer. He gave the tires
every test he knew and when he was
through he said: “You have forced us
to redesign the automobile.”
The AUTOMOBILE has been <
redesigned. Most of the manufacturers
have since then at least doubled their
horsepower to gain speed. They could
put speed into their cars because:
Firestone balloon tires formed a cush
ion between the car and the road and
made high speed more comfortable . • •
the Firestone non-skid tread gripped
the road and made high speeds safe from
skidding... the Firestone Gum-Dipped
construction made high speeds safe
from tire failure.
Now , Firestone announces another new tire—again built
in advance of today’s car requirements.This new Firestone Heavy
Duty, Gum-Dipped Balloon surpasses in strength, toughness,
traction and wear-resistance any tire even Firestone has ever
With these tires, you need no longer ask: “Will my Tires
do 75?^ You have a wide margin of safety at any speed. At
every Firestone dealer’s you can recognize them by their mag
nificent construction and by the gold stripe that stands out
against the ebony black sidewalls•... Let this tire give you the
reasons for Firestone leadership.
