Goodyear Tires.

The head of the service department of the Goodyear Tyre and Rubber Co., Ltd., in concluding some interesting references to the care of solid tires remarks : "The best tire advice that can be given to a truck owner is, 'Equip your truck with tires adequate to carry the load you want to put on them ; then give your driver hard-and-fast instructions that to that point he shall load the truck and no further.' It is true that, compared to pneumatic tires, solids need little care, but what care they do need is absolutely essential to full mileage."
