CARELESSNESS WILL 1 ROPE STEERS FROM AUTOMOBILE LESSEN TIRE'S LIFE Motorists Continue to Disregard Simple Rules. Underlnflatlon, Scraping Along Curb 8tones and Bumping Into Curbs and Obstructions Are Among Common Abuses. Tires have Improved so much In qual ity in recent years that even when abused a good tire gives such a good mileage that the motorist is usually satisfied that he got his money's worth. But motorists continue to show dis regard for a few simple rules, and their carelessness greatly Increases their tire bills. The three ways In which this carelessness manifests It self chiefly are underlnflatlon, scrap ing along curb stones and bumping Into curbs and obstructions, accord ing to the observations of the service department of one of the largest tire companies. Improper Inflation costs more than all other faults put together. By the simple expedient of taking the trouble once a week to make sure that each tire is sufficiently Inflated, a car owner will add -amazingly to the mile age he gets from his tires. Under this head It is well to repeat the old admonition the tires should be pumped to the same figure in summer as In winter. The expansion of the air in the tires In hot weather Is so in finitesimal that It should be entirely disregarded, and the tire pumped up to the prescribed figure. Scraping along a curb Is an exceed ingly common form of tire abuse. An evidence of the commonness of this practice may be found by noticing the number of tires that are peeled or scraped on the outer side of the tire while the Inner side is In perfect con dition. Bumping a tire Into a curb, particu larly when underinflated, Is one of the most serious forms of mistreatment, for It causes breaks In a fabric founda tion which quickly bring the tire's use fulness to an end.
