Since it; now appears that new tires for automobiles are going to be practieail¥ impossible to obtain due to the need of rubber for de- ~ensc, it ~behooves/automobile ow- ners ~ take the besl; care of tires tney now hav~ Life of automobile tires can be prolonged mate~iatty by a little more attention to the care of and to the operation of the car. D.K. Struthere, engineer, at Iowa State College makes the~ saggestions: 1. Keep correct air pressure. Test tires once a week--be par- t~c~l~trly careful when tempera- tures vary through a wide ra~e. Under-inflit~L tires break the sidewalls and increase gaaollne ~consumpti~n. ~er-in~litsd tires cause excessive wear at the center of tl~e tread. 2. Balance wheels on c~. Wheels out of balino~ eau~ un- even and rapid tire wear. 3 Align wheels. Front wheels out of alignment cause & m~b- bing action between tire and road. ~ront whse~ should toe~in a slight amount. 4. Drive at moderate s~Hmda~ Excessive speeds ca~e rapid fixa wear. 5. Avoid sudden stqpa and starts. Start or stop the motion of the car gradually to avoid e~ip~ page cf the tire~k 6. ~low down for curves. Tak- ing curves at too high a speed puts a tremendous aidewlse pres- sure on tires which tends to c.4tuse slippage or skidding. 7. Be on the look-out ~or nalk~ screws, bolte, l~oards with nails and shar9 stones, pieces of glisa and other items in the drivewa~ and farm yard. Every nail yo~ pick up as you walk aero~ the yard means lessening the pos- sibility for a punctttm. 8. Do not overload the car. Th~ is a frequent cause of ~va wear on tires, particularly on ~arm automobiles.
