DON’T NMTTIRES IN CAR'S SPRING TUNE-UP In the usual spring overhaul, reconditioned, or tune-up of their cars, many motorists make the mistake of stopping with the mechanical features, decid ing that they will try to make the tires do. And that in the opinion of J. C. Jayne, local Goodyear dealer, is false econo my. “The first hot weather will see a line-up of cars along the highways for tire changes which in the long run will cost the car owner more than the price of new r rubber. And, very definite ly, many a motorist who has tried to squeeze the last dime’s worth of mileage out of thin, weak tires soon regrets it,” de clared Mr. Jayne. “Moreover, replacement of old tires now with brand new ones is not only sound economy but a safety measure as well, because the risk of driving in summer traffic on tires that are not safe is increased by the constant danger of blowouts or punctures, not to mention the loss of time and the consequent inconvenience. “Especially is it false econo my to take a chance on thin weak tires nowadays when pri ces have never been as low as they are today, he continued. Service check-up of tire equip ment on anyone’s automobile is offered by the Coolidge Auto Supply without charge or obli gation.
