"These long, tough studs are scientifically correct" "The principles governing the construction of the Republic Staggard Tread are based on study of road surfaces, on analysis of skidding dangers, on real knowledge of conditions that beset tires. "First of all, the studs are designed to meet the road in a longitudinal position, which insures a firm grip and prevents skidding and side-slipping. "Second, they are 'staggard,' each row overlapping the other on the road, thus giving perfect traction and a smooth, even running surface. "Third, they are rounded at the ends, and therefore will not catch nails and other sharp objects. "Fourth, they have a filleted base and are set far -says Old Man Mileage enough apart to prevent trapping of sand and grit. "Fifth, they are set in six rows thus distributing the strain over the largest possible area. "Add to these five points of superior tread construc tion the highest quality of material and workmanship obtainable, and you have in Republic Staggard Tread Tires the world's greatest non-skid mileage maker, the original, effective non-skid tire, that cost more to buy than many, but less to use than any."
