HAS BI6 VALUE Ingenious Arrangement To Show Tire Mileages At Factory Used A simple but effective method of j testing tires for adhesion between'many the tread and breaker strips and also for adhesion between plies and fabric is used by The Madson Tire & Rubber company of Kent, Ohio, in addition to the usual road tests. A machine run by electric motor is equipped with two specially built steel pulleys over which are mounted the tires to be tested. The tires re volve by contact with the pulleys .on the faces of which are cleats about 1-4 inch high. These cleats are about . eight inches apart and are set—some at right angles and other diagonally in opposite relation. The tires are run at the rate of twenty miles per hour over these cleats, a speedometer being used to regulate this. Each tire thus receives tremendously pow erful blows throughout its circumfer ence, or the periphery of its tread. These blows correspond to what is called 'stone bruise," which is the worst punishment of this character that is it possible to give a tire. The machine is run continuously, day and night, until the tires run about 5,000 miles. The tires are then cut open to ascertain the condition of the various parts. Tt has repeatedly shown that if a tire will stand this treatment without any sign of tread or fabric separation or other injury, it will go on the, road, without separ ation, until actually worn out in all respects. T't shöuW be clearly under stood that' this treatment is ■sense a test of the wearing quality of the tread, but is purely for adhesion as above explained. The grind of sand, gravel, rock and what not of ac tual road driving is the only reliable test of the toughness and wear resist ing properties of the tread. This is obtained on test fars by continuous driving day and night over all kinds of roads. Use 700 Pounds Pressure. The tires revolve on the testing ma chine each under a pressure of about 700 pounds. This is equivalent to the average proportionate weight sus tained by each tire on a car, so that this testing machine a ppnovimates very closely actual road conditions as regards rogd shocks. This is only one method of many of the tests employed by the Mason Tire & Rubber Co. to demonstrate the quality of its tires and to make sure beyond question of d,oubt that they are fully up to the high standard set for them. Tt is such care that en ables Mason tires to make records like that of forty-eight times over rug ged mountains and twice across a burning desert in California without serious injury.
