Picking1 the kids up Muscle Car made it necessary for tire manufacturers, including Uniroyal, to develop special kinds of tires for them. These car own- ers usually know they need them be- cause of the style of driving they're like- ly to do. Plus the fact that a lot of money has been spent tell- ing them they do. Well, there are a lot of car owners who don't need them. They'd be simply wasting their money on this kind of tire. They need some- thing else because of thekincl of car own and the kind of driving they're likely to do. And Uniroyal has developed tires espe- cially for them, Among them is the Uniroyal Fastrak 4-Ply Polyester. (Obviously a name only an engineer could love.) It was created for the family sedan at school. If this sounds like you, then the Fastrak 4-Ply Polyester (there's that name again) is ideally suited to your driving needs. layers) make for a carcass that's every bit as strong as the one in a belted muscle car tire.

A day in the country. (What happens The office and back. The cottage, when you've been driving for a while and the tire's a little warm, and you happen to park. A lot of tires form flat spots where the standing weight of the car forces down on them.When you startup again later, the tire's a little out of shape and it starts bumping as it turns, and making noise.) So along with strength and du- rability our Fas- trak 4-Ply Poly- ester also gives you a smooth and noise-free ride. Then there's our exclusive tread design. It gives our tire skid-resis- tance and pull-away traction equal to that of a belted muscle car tire. And gives you some peace of mine! knowing that those qualities are there if you ever need them. All of which brings us back again to "only buy what you re- ally do need." If it sounds like the Uniroyal Fastrak 4-Ply Polyester just might be it (in spite of its you'll need just one more thing.
