"Skidding is usually In the direction
of a right angle to the direction of the
car, which accounts for the All
Weather -treafl design of doodycar
tires. The surfaces of the rubber
blocks are turned at an angle of 45
degrees to help to overcome skidding
tendencies. This accounts for the diamond-shaped
rubber projections on
"Then this tread design serves an
other purpose. The diamond-shaped
rubber blocks obviate the difficulty
of starting and stopping on slippery
pavements, snow-covered, or wet from
rains, by helping to grip and secure
"It Is now fashionable and profit
able for motorists to equip all four
wheels with non-skid tires. They save
tilm many anxious moments In traffic
jams, and help to maintain his peace
of mind. It has now become quite
common practice for motorists. In pre
paring for the winter's driving season

that have been used during the sum

wheels, and to place new tires on the
rears. Or if the front tires are still
In good condition, the worn rear tires
may be held over and used the next
summer, when there Is less danger or
skidding. It is a good fule to keep
your car well equipped with All

There are times, of course, when
chains are necessary, but many a good
tiro has been ruined by chains Improp
erly applied. Chajns must be applied
inaw.lv to obtain the best results. If
thev are fitted tightly to the tire,
they gouge Ino he rubber as the tire
rolls along the street, and the tire Is
soon damaged. A good tire chain,
nroDerly applied, affords valuable pro
tectum against .skidding tendencies,
tut great care should be taken that it
has a free movement on ine lire.
Otherwise yoox freedom from skidding
will come at the cost of greatly reduc

equipment tor winter driving resolves
itself into the selection ot proper non
