ANNOUNCING THE FIRST TIRE DESIGNED FOR HIGH-HORSEPOWER TRACTORS: THE ALL-NEW FIRESTONE FEATURING FIRESTONE'S EXCLUSIVE gy ANGLE TRACTION BAR. With the phenomenal growth of big-acre, commercial farming comes the need for a new farm tire, big enough and tough enough to withstand the torque stresses of today's high-horsepower engines ... a tire that converts more horsepower into pulling power. And we have it made: the new Firestone Deep Tread tractor tire. It's built big all around. With deeper, wider, flatter traction bars, set at our proven 23° angle for more pull in the field—longer wear on the road. How much deeper? 25% deeper than original equipment tires at center tread. 42% deeper at the shoulder. And its tread is full cross- section width. Size by size, the widest rear tractor tire tread you can buy. FIRESTONE DEEP TREAD DOUBLE GUARANTEE 1. If, within £0 days of the date of purchase the new Deep Tread tire does noi outpull any 45* bar angle replacement or premium tires you've ever used, your Firestone dealer or store will (a) refund within 30 days thereafter the amount paid, or (b) allow the amount in full credit on any other Firestone rear tractor tires.* 2. The new Firestone Deep Tread tractor tire is further guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for the Fife of the original tread. This guarantee provides for replacement with the same site and type of lire pro-rated on tread bar wear and based on Firestone prices current at lime of adjustment. 'Traction guarantee does not apply to special purpose rear tractor Urea used in rice and cane farming. And that isn't all. We added two extra plies to fortify the tread area against impacts under extreme pull. And we beefed it up with a heavier, stronger tire body, made with long-wearing, crack-resistant Sup-R-Tuf rubber, for extra seasons of service. What's more, it's made with Sup-R-Lon, the new extra-strength cord developed exclusively for Firestone tires. Combined with our new cord-processing and tire-building techniques, it welds into the toughest tractor tire body ever built. Cost a little more? Sure. But then, you get a lot more. Details? Get them today at your nearby Firestone Dealer or Store. (And while you're 1 there, ask about our convenient crop terms, too.) Remember, Firestone tire experts will handle all your farm and truck tire needs. See the NEW DEEP TREAD CORN & SOYBEAN CLINIC 9:30 A. M, to 3:30 P. M. ON DISPLAY AT THE - V.F.W.
