Don't Spare the Tire
and Spoil the Inidi
A motor truck is a piece of delicate machinery.. Don't sacri
fice its old age by using solid tires.
Don't let it bang and rattle its life away—making its driver's
day miserable torture—and its load likely to smash.
Use easy tires—General Cords—that ease your load over roads—that pro
tect your expensive truck and its valuable contents from the bumps of
the road. General Cord Truck Tires are made like all General Tires, to
give you satisfaction—and that word covers a lot of territory.
Don't spare the tire and spoil the truck.
Let the General Tire Dealer show you why the General Truck Tire is the
best tire for commercial use.
