You are doubtless familiar with the
situation surrounding Goodyear
Tires, and our difficulty in supplying
promptly the enormous demand for
them.
Possibly you yourself, in anticipation
of your future requirements, have
deemed it wise to place a reservation
order with your Goodyear dealer
It is likely you have wondered, why,
with a production enlarged beyond
any previous figure, such precaution
to insure getting Goodyear Tires
should be necessary
Surely it is a strange condition, that
despite such production and the in
telligent competition of the manu
facturers of some 300 other brands of
tires, Goodyear Tires should continue
to be oversold
The true explanation of this condi
tion concerns no, other thing than the
remarkably fine service Goodyear
Tires everywhere deliver to users
You people who have used Goodyear
Tires know by how uniformly gener
ous a margin this service exceeds that
commonly given by ordinary tires
To those who have not used them,
we wish especially to emphasize that
the present unmatched popularity of
Goodyear Tires rests wholly on the
merit they embody ,
No fictitious discounts, no delusive
guarantees, no expedients of any sort
have been employed to stimulate
artificially the favor they normally
command
At present we are devoting our whole
energies to the problem of fulfilling
as soon as possible every call for our
product that may arise
For months past, the production of
our Akron factories has approximated
25,000 finished tires per day, while
the daily output of our Canadian
plants has well exceeded 2,000
Work is already under way, now, for
the establishment of a plant in Los
Angeles which will allow us several
thousand tires additional daily volume
These figures, representing by far the
largest tire production in the world,
reflect with what earnestness we are
endeavoring to make Goodyear Tires
easy to get everywhere
