WEEKLY MOTOR NOTES. When the question of plain tyres as dis- 1 tinguished from nonskids comes up for con- ,i d era f) -at the beginning of the season let us or when spares are being laid in on thereof a long tour-many motorists appear to forget that their cars are four wheeled vehicles. That is to say there is often a strong tendency (origin unknown) to provide an outfit of Michelin Square Treads for the front wheels only. The back wheeli- similarly are treated to an unvarying accompaniment of Nonskid. But why limit Square Treads in this way ? Two nonskids on the back wheels are an excellent equip- ment but this does not imply that a non- skid and a Square Tread, or two Square Tfeads, are never to be used on the rear wheels. The Michelin Square Tread is well able to put up an excellent working record on back wheels simply because it is made for back wheel work-as you will appreciate w heu you come to examine the details of its construction. To begin with, it is moulded in one piece. There are no joins the tread is not made separately and vulcan- ised on to the body. This feature in itself makes for far greater strength than that eujoyed by any all-rubber cover made in several parts. Then again the tread of the Michelin Square Tread is strongly compressed. When inflated, the tyre presents a broad square suface of tough compressed rubber of remarkable thickness. With its beautiful resiliency it makes easy riding, and with its tremendous strength and toughness it makes mileage to satisfy the heart and pocket of the most ardent tourist. Not every road and not every car by any o,meaus demands a full nonskid armoury. Therefore take the foregoing remarks also into account and use Michelin Square Treads —or at least, make one of the pair a Michelin Square Tread —on the back wheels of your car. BIBENDUM. I ————
