"Sorry I backed into you, old man; you must let me pay for the damage. Five dollars ought to straighten that fender, and $14.90 will buy you a 30x33I Kelly. Then you'll have at least one tire that will stand all the grief you can give it." M ANY people have the impression that Kellys are high-priced tires used mostly on big cars. As a matter of fact, nearly half the pneumatic tires we make are Ford sizes, and now that greatly enlarged manufactur ing facilities have brought our production costs dbwn, the Ford owner pays no more for his Kellys than he would have to pay for many other makes of tires that have never borne so high a reputation.
