THE UNIROYAL MASTER
IF IT SAVES YOUR LIFE ONCE ...
IT'S A BARGAIN!
With Uniroyal Masters on your car, you'll never know when you
pick up a nail.
Because we put a Seal Rite lining in our tire. Seal Rite is a special
compound that covers the inside of the air chamber.
When you hit a nail or a spike, the lining grips the puncturing
object and seals in the air. Instead of a blowout, you get a slowout.
And it could make all the difference in the world.
