This new tire has a wider .tread of flatter contomy deeper non-skid, more and tougher rubber, giving you more than 50% longer non-skid mileage. . Besides being Safety .Protected on that outside it is Safety Protected on the inside^ Eight additional pounds of pure rubber «M» . absorbed by every one hundred pound* o£ cords. i ! . . . - . This additional rubber is so placed that i* surrounds every cotton fiber inside every cord in every ply. This is accomplished by soaking the cords in liquid rubber by a> Firestone patented process. This patented process, Gum-Dipping, i» not used in any other tire built. ,.,./ r : -Heat caused'b^internal friction of cotton fibers destroys tires-rcaiises separation andl blowouts. "• ''•''•'•''-•''• '"'• •-••"•••• Gum-Dipping counteracts friction and heat—provides greater adhesion and bind* ", the cotton and rubber together into om» cohesive unit of greater strength, assuring ear owners of the greatest Safety, Protection and Economy that it is possible for human ingenuity to build into a tire. < The most amazing proof of this extra strength, safety and dependability is the fact that everyone of the 33 driver* at Indianapolis chose and bought Firestone High Speed Tires. ' Race drivers KNOW tire construction—they will not risk their lives or chance of victory on any other than Firestone. At terrific speeds the cars plunge into the treacherous turns—tires are braced against the scorching brick track-— so hot the tires fairly smoke at tunes—they give—yield and stretch—^#very, conceivable.force works to tear the tire to; pieces, ye,t Firestone High Speed Tires "come back" on the straightaways. Not once during the entire race did a tire faU. Surely this is the most amazing proof ever known of Extra Strength, SAFETY and dependability.
