Two Tires inOne This is what the "Nobby Tread" Tire practically is-Two wear-resisting Tires in One The big, thick, tough rubber "Nobs" that prevent skidding are made on a big, thick, extra strong additional strip. Then this heavy strip is welded by hand and vulcanized on to an extra heavy, extra strong tire. You have got to wear out the big, thick, tough "Nobs" of rubber before you even start to wear out the extra strong tire underneath. Then comes the great big difference in the quantity and the quality of the rubber and of the fabric that is used in "Nobby Treads." An unusually large amount of rubber and fabric is used in "Nobby reads," and - only the very toughest and the best rubber, and -only the strongest, especially selected fabric. Then don't forget this fact, - rubber quality can differ and fabric quality can differ just as much as the quality of leather can differ. These are the reasons for the history-making mileage records of "Nobby Tread" anti-skid Tires during the past four years, and based upon these mileage records we recently announced that "Nobby Tread" Tires are now sold under our regular warranty-perfect workmanship and material-BUT any adjustments are on a basis of 5,000 Miles The unusual wear-resisting quality-the quantity of rubber-the quantity of fabric-the method of construction all have been rigidly maintained in "Nobby Tread" anti-skid tires, -and maintained regardless of cost, - and maintained regardless of price competition. "Nobby Tread" Tires are REAL anti-skid tires, and mile for mile, dollar for dollar, they are by far the most economical tires. United States Tire Company DO NOT BE TALKED INTO A SUBSTITUTE Your own dealer or any reliable dealer can supply you with "Nobby Tread" Tires. If he has no stock on hand, insist that he get them for you at once -or go to another dealer. Note This:-Dealers who sell UNITED STATES TIRES sell the best of everything.
