Mr. and Mrs Alfred Carlisle and Let's have a SHOWDOWN <m this matter of TIRE COMPARISONS ITH all the conflicting claims published about tires, it is obvious that misleading statements are being made. The only conclusion that you as a tire buyer can draw is that either we, as Firestone Dealers, are misrepresenting Firestone products, Or that a certain mail order house is not telling the truth about theirs. Both can't be right—one or the other is misleading the public by their comparisons. Firestone, in their advertising, only make comparisons that can be easily verified by the customer before buying tires. To attempt to substantiate the comparisons made by this mail order house, it would be necessary to go into a laboratory and employ experts. The very reason that the comparisons made in Firestone advertising enable you to get the facts yourself, ninkrs it unnccrssary for Mr. Firestone to make affidavit on the truth of his statements or to file any complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, and then advertise it, in an nttrmpt to lend the public to believe his statements were true. Mr. Firestone doesn't ask you to accept comparisons about Firestone Tires and special brand mail order tires until you see the facts yourself. Neither do we. All we ask is that you make your own comparison. We have cross-sections cut from special brand mail order tires purchased from stocks of moil order house and Firestone Tires — no "tricky" or misleading comparisons—come in today and make your own comparison* for Quality, Construction, and Prices.
