Here are 5 important reasons why Dayton i^ helping'you to a wise tire choice with Dated Tires: There's nothing [ could do to change natural rubber. \ \ The inake-up.of rubber from trees is fixed'by nature. Therefore, improvements in compounds of naliuul rubber came slowly and with grea£. .difficulty. \. \ \ -\ \ \ to almost any change in synthetic rubb«r. Through the workers of the chemical laboratory, man has learned to make synthetic rubber' of whatever kind he chooses. He can cpntrpJ its resiliency, wearability, and ^very other characteristic. ' - ' Synthetic tire compounds are constantly changing for the bettor. This scientific development is swift, and continuous. 'Now synthetic tires are Vastly superior .to the 35-mile wartime tirea.- Tomorrow's : will be even better. " . • How can you know just how good your new tires ore? Tires look much alike; you k ciiiinot see the (liirei't'iu:oa in compound and construction, hi today's onrusliing advance lo over higher quality, how can you recognize tho latest ami best? The answer is—when were they made? Since a few short months can make so much tUITerence in improved quality, obr viously, to make a wise tire choice you need to know when your tires wero ivjtule. But how can you, or your dealer know? That's why Dayton tires are dated.
