pay $1,008 apiece for tires, yoi v
couldn t get anything better than Qood

Here's why: Goodyear builds them
without a cost limitation of any kind
puts into them the finest of workman
ship and materials that money can buy.
On top of this fact, Goodyear enjoys
lowest costs through building MII

company. So you get these M$l,000

standard tire prices. '"
