I SYNTHETIC THE NEW U.S.ROYAL Even'tire men had their fingers crossed when they were faced with the job of building tires entirely from the new government synthetic rubber GR-S. Many' said it couldn't be done. But it was done! And in record time! Today, the new U.S. Royal DeLuxe' synthetic tire,'when driven at wartime speeds and' given the kind of care any good tire deserves is doing a job so good that it's dose to pre-war performance—' andiimprovementa are still being;made. When you; are Eligible; for; new tires, remember,'the new U.S. Royal DeLuxe synthetic tires are good tires! VENTILATED! it* open. •paced tread decign and deep-cut •boulders allow cooling air to circulate freely drawing heat away from the body of the tire. This u vitally important in aynthetic tire*. IPS SAFETY BONDED! Every cord i* bathed in a specially compounded solution that locks the cord* firmly into layers of synthetic rubber cushion. Safety Bonding means extra mile* of cafe service. IT'S MILEAGE-TESTED! In the laboratory and on the road, U.S. Royal DeLuxe synthetic tires •re mileage-tested, proving over and over again that "U. b." synthetic tire* Are food tires!
