1928-08-26 Koch, G. Earl discusses how brakes effect tire wear
FAULTY BRAKES CAUSE BICES BIVE TIRE WEAR Complaints of hundreds of automobile owners that tires do not give the mileage guar anteed by the manufacturer are largely due to the owner's neglect, according to G. Earl Koch, manager of the Auto Brake Service Company, of this city. Too many onwers, he says, drove cars with Improperly adjusted brakes that bring the tar to a stop with one or more wheels eliding over rough streets, and every time this is done the owner may look behind and see a considerable part of his tire mileage mileage lying in the street, the black line that indicated where the wheel dragged. Brakes that bring the car to a gradual stop, utilizing both rear, cr all four wheels will add hundreds of miles to a set of tires, Koch declares. declares.
