What Is the
Secret of Long Life
In a Tire, Anyhow:
It's the tread and here is the reason :
The tread of your tire is the part that takes all
the wear, soaks up the road shock and keepr he
bumps away from the fabric.
: Entirely reasonable then that it should be broad
and thick, isn't it?
That's the idea back of the Super Tread Tire. It's
important and it means a lot more miles to you.
