WHAT TRUCK and BUS OPERATORS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SYNTHETIC TIRES 450157
STATISTICS show clearly that, while the quantity of synthetic is increasing at a satisfactory rate, the stockpile of natural rubber is already dangerously low, with little hope of improvement very soon. Less than 10% of the natural rubber that we actually need is being imported into the country.
It is necessary, therefore, that truck and bus operators learn the limitations of the synthetic tires that they will continue to get, and which will contain increasing percentages of synthetic.
To aid the operators in giving these tires the care they need for maximum life and repeated retreadings, Mr. Hale gives here a short manual of dos and don'ts for the proper care of synthetic tires.
