The Millions Saved on Tires Goodyear No-Rim-Cut tire actually cut tiro bills in two. They trebled our tire sales last year. They are saving millions of dollars to motor car owners who ascertain the facts. The No-Kim -Cut Tire 2 This is the Goodyear No-Rim-Cut tire as it fits any standard rim. Koto that the rim flan(?es which are remov able curvo outward when you use these tires. The tire comes against the rounded edge. One can ruu it deflated tor 20 miles without cutting the tire in the slightest. No-Rlm-Cut tires have no hooks on the base, as have all common tires. They don't Deed to be hooked to the rim. The tire base is made unitretchablc, so nothing can force the tire over the flange. Into the base we vulcanize 126braided piano wires. These braided wires contract tinder air pressure, so the inflated tire is held to the rlrn by a pressure of 134 pounds to the inch. We control this feature by patent. It gives us the only practical tire with an unstretchable base the only safe tire which isn't hooked to the rim the only desirable tire which get a rid of rim-cutting. This saving aloft cuts tlr bills 25 per cent. As a result, 64 ladlf motor car makers bar can tract ed for Goodyear No. Rim Cut tires on their 1911 models. Ordinary Clinch? Til Here Is n clincher tire the ordinary tire fitted on the same rim. The re movable rim flanges must be turned t curve inward to grasp hold of the hook to diglntothetire when deflated. Thi9 tire can be ruined in a single block if you run It flat. ' 10 Oversize No-Rim-Cut Tires With or Without Non-Skid Trtad Goodyear No-Rim-Cut tires are mad 10 per cent oversize. The bookies construction allows this. That means 10 per cent more air 10 per cent more carrying capacity. It means, with the average car, 25 per cent additional mileage per tire. This extra size takes care of th extra weight th top, glass front, gaa tank, extra tires, etc. It avoids over loading the cause of most blow-outs. Yet this extra size costs nothing extra cow. .
