T HIS is a machine for stretching cords the way they'll have to stretch in your tire — every time the tire rolls around, which means about 500 times a minute at 45 miles an hour. Both cords have been stretched exactly the same — and then released. Look at the farther cord. It's come back tight and straight again. That's Supertwist — the cord used in every ply of every Goodyear Tire. \ Now look at that broken cord in the foreground — and think what might happen if you had cords like that in your tire! There's a little lesson in safety that's won millions of people to Goodyears—because it shows, without a lot of empty claims, exactly how much better Goodyear protects you from blowouts—and why you get longer average life from a Goodyear Tire. If this sounds a little technical - we'll sum it up in this: More people ride on Goodyear Tires than on any other kind —and of course that means more people buy them! How about you?
