The illustration shows how admirably it is suited to resist side slip or loss of traction. The moderate price makes its mileage cost very low, and its dependable anti-skid properties fit it for all-round service. Because there are so many different kinds of cars and roads and drivers, and no one type of tire can possibly suit all needs, we make four distinct types: DOMINION TREADS-new, but already they have "made PLAIN and serviceable. CHAIN TREADS-the famous, efficient anti-skids. NOBBY aristocrats of the puncture proof.
