Some False Ideas About Them
Should an txtta price buy an extra
It should not. Any first-grade
tire should be built as well as a tire
of that type can be built.
Cord Tires cost more than Fab
rics, and arc worth the extra price.
Men who figure cost per mile are
coining to Cord Tires.
But any tire, Cord or Fabric,
should be built for the utmost ser
vice which that type can give.
Some Men Over-Pay
Some men pay extra prices, ex
pecting extra mileage. Some pay
under prices for an under-grade, and
hope to save in that way.
Both arc wrong. There may be
exceptions there are always freak
tires. But countless tests have
proved that Miller Tires at Miller
prices, on the
the lowest cost
Cord and Fab
ric, cost about
smooth with suc
tion cup, for firm
meth like cog ia
We Insist on This
There arc three requirements
which Miller Tires must meet.
First, they must average greater
mileage, type for type, than any
rival tire. f
We constantly prove this. Eight
machines in our factory run two
tires each under rear-tire conditions.
Each tire is run 650 miles daily by
Won Over 21 Makes
The Eldorado Stage Co. of Lo
Angele totted 21 other mukea agalmt
Millers on 12.pasenger Packard
Duiei, weighing 8,600 pound loaded.
In thli (upreme tett Millars won by
long odd, onlong-dittance uniformity.
Here we constantly compare the
best other tires with Millers. Also
in ceaseless road tests. Thus, day
by day and week by week, we are
guarding the Miller supremacy.
Every Tire Signed
Wc insist that Millers must be
uniform. Each tire is signed. A
record is kept of the maker, the in-
spector and the process.
If a tire comes back for adjust
ment wc learn the reason. If the
workman is at fault he is penalized.
If the inspector overlooked a flaw
he is held responsible. If any proc
ess or material is at fault, wc cor
After years of this checking we've
attained uniform tires. There are
whole large cities from which not a
Miller Tire came back last year.
Treads Must Endure
Miller Treads, by our standard,
must outwear the balance of the tire.
Wc have attained a tread which
outwears rivals by 25 per cent.
Every day our tread stock is vul
canized, then tested, in our labora
tory. Wc permit no variation.
Not a single Miller Tire with
these new-grade treads has ever
come back with the tread gone.
Not 20,000 Miles
Countless reports come to us on
Miller Cord Tires showing 20.000 to
28,000 miles of service. And talc3
of that kind arc told everywhere, we
But mileage depends on condi
tions on size, care, load and road.
Millers are uniform, but thoy aro
not used under uniform conditions.
In our factory tests we average
15,000 mHcs on Cords.
But a Miller Tire will outlast
almost always anj lire that you
place opposite, no matter what it
costs. Compare them under like
conditions, and si- what mileage
modern tires can give
