It Costs More
to ride on Old
Tires Than on
Figure up your costs for punctures, repairs and de
lays with old tires. The last miles are not economy.
With new Goodyears so low-priced, and our liberal
allowance for your old tires before you render them
worthless, you are money ahead on new tires.
By building 100,000 tires a day a production far
greater than that of any other company Goodyear
enjoys lowest costs.
