Belted tires can be criss cross (bias) ply or radial ply

(cords of the fabric radiate from the imaginary center of

tire). The belt goes around the circumference of the tire
and is as wide as the tread. The belt braces the tread.

Belted tires roll more efficiently so they wear better. Be-
cause the tread is supported, they stop shorter and re-
spond to steering faster. If 50% or more of your driving

is on the expressway, the extra cost of belted tires will

pay for itself in mileage and safer handling.

Belted Bias and Radial tires were pioneered by Dunlop.
Dunlop's success in building belted tires has produced a
flawless product. The dividend is yours. Both Bias Belted
and Radial Dunlop tires are available here now at the best
