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 keeps the
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 mile3 to you.
