He agreed to tell about our tire. We agreed not to tell his name. This is a true story about a tire almost too good to be true. A tire that's 33% stronger-that gives 30% better mileage than even our fiberglass-belted tire. The story's from a state trooper. An expert on highway driving... and highway safety. We can give you his story but not his name. Because neither the trooper nor his state can lend their names to any prod uct. So his face is masked, his uniform disguised. "I've been driving a patrol car for 14 years now, and I guess I've tried every kind of tire. But never anything like these Lifesaver Radials. The way they hold the road on curves and in the rain is ... well, it's fantastic. But the really amazing thing is the mileage. We get three or four times as much wear out of Lifesavers as we do from specially built patrol tires." You can hear the same kind of testi mony from troopers across the country now riding on B. F. Goodrich Radials. Exactly the same tires you can buy. Lifesavers are like no other tires you've ever ridden on. They're made a whole new way with a belt of Dynacor® Rayon Cord. So they corner better. Take curves better. Stop quicker. Lifesavers handle better and run cooler at high speed than fiberglass tires even our own. Lifesavers are the saf est tires we've ever made. SThey're the tires your life should be riding on. -"' Wofi / The New BFG Lifesaver Radials. Your life should be riding on them.
