Where your when you ski Every time you skid you wear off miles and miles of tire service. It's like so many dollars being thrown in front of the street cleaner's scraper. Loss of traction always means loss of tire money. Chief Engineer of the International Motor Company, A. F. Masury says: "Sliding the wheels of railroad cars causes flat wheels. If sliding a hardened steel tire over a smooth steel rail for a few seconds can so abrade the wheel that its pounding will crack 150-lb.,rails, fancy the damage to a rubber tire in skidding or sliding over a stone or concrete road. "No matter how carefully and skillfully you drive when roads are wet and slippery, it is next to impossible to avoid skidding unless your tires are equipped with Anti-Skid Chains-such as Weed Chains."
