The Goodrich Tire,
like the trained athlete is all brawn and muscle no fat A THE old Olympic Game promoters were great for what we call "form." Symmetry, proportion, soundness end proper balance out-bid bulging muscles for favor yes, and out-won, too, just as they will today. - Mere - bulk never was synonymous with ' endurance and the truth of this statement drives home with a bang, when you apply it to tires. r' thick, heavy tires were the last word in tire construction, we could wipe out of existence a Goodrich Research and Test Department employing seventy people. We would take off the road a battalion of ten automobiles, that run twenty-four hours a day and every day in the year, grinding tires of all makes to pieces, just for the sake of information to us and eventual economy to the user of Goodrich Tires. There is where we learn to cut out cf a tire the material which gets the user nothing. Of course, when we stripped tire price lists of their padding fictitious values we expected rivals to say we had stripped our tires. Note the following table of comparative prices on non-skid tires. Columns headed i'A," "B," "C" and "D" represent four highly-advertised tires J r' was their only "come-back." They had to say that, in stripping down prices to the point where they were fair to dealer and consumer and left no room for injurious price-cutting tactics, we had stripped our tires of some quality, too. , 5 . THE Goodrich Tire, like the trained athlete, is all brawn and muscle no fat. It represents an achievement the ability to cut out the extra costs of manu facture, the extra costs of labor, of extra, needless material, and to give you the best, long-mileage, high-standard tire in the world. TL3re are padded tires as well as padded price lists. Don't pay for padding. Now don't forget this we are talking in the main about Goodrich Safety Tread Tires, for they represent ninety per cent of our factory output for resale. Furthermore, while we have . X the pad ded prices on smooth tread tire3 on the run, the evil of padded prices on non-s!:id tires still is in evidence, as shown in table below : THE 8. F.
