America's resourceful rr.llroati A SEASONAL AILMENT Any tire expert has seen numerous cases of brand new tires worn completely bald of tread in fifty miles or loss due to faulty wheel alignment. This is oflrn iho rasp aftrr a front mil collision at high speed lias loft the steering mechanism out of kilter. The tire is (hen in effect pushed sideways over the road, rubbing off the rubber much like a pencil eraser is rubbed on paper. ^ You don't have to hunt very far at this time of year to find a road with potholes. Or know why they acquired the "pothole" tag. Some of the worst ones are big enough to bury a pot in and D NELSON lhcy can cook U P plenty of trouble for your front end alignment. A lire striking a pothole at high speed is usually forced Into as- , other direction than the one it was travelling due to the contour of the hole. The tremendous weight of the cur. measuring up to hundreds of foot-tons, continues to bear down upon the alignment mechanism. Something has ' to give and the tightened joints do just Hint. The result is difficult steering ' and a tire worn out thousands of miles before its time. If the misalignment is bad enough, the resulting wear can destroy the tire before you even notice what is taking place. If you've been driving through the past Winter, the chances are your steering needs alignment now to prevent costly tire damage. If it doesn't, an inspection at our garage will cost nothing and give you peace of mind. 'V ^{M*^. KOSSUTH MOTOR CO.
