The re­tired tire

Record Observer - - Opinion -

A lonely farm trac­tor tire sits alone in a re­cently har­vested soy­bean field along the road side on scenic Rt. 213 in Queen Anne’s County. Au­tumn skies il­lu­mi­nate this set­ting with wood­lands back­ground and fall col­ors.

The Fire­stone Ra­dial All Trac­tion farm trac­tor tires have ul­ti­mate trac­tion in all soil types and con­di­tions pro­vid­ing long wear and pos­i­tive trac­tion in per­for­mance and re­li­a­bil­ity for farm­ing the land. Al­most 500 pounds, the rim width is 18 inches, and at over 5 feet tall, the over­all di­am­e­ter is 76.2 inches.

Now this lonely re­tired tire is a sight to be­hold! This ra­dial farm tire that was once ma­jes­tic and worked many hours sun­rise to sun­set has come to the end of its days on the Shore.
