Additional Information

1960 Promotional -

"BF GOODRICH LIFESAVER TUBELESS" is what it says on the tire.  

Movement looks super clean, pretty sure this was never really run.  Box is excellent and says Bulova Fifth Avenue inside.

I don't believe we've ever found an advertisement for these.  I have a feeling they may have been special ordered by BF Goodrich for their dealers.  Some sort of attaboy for sales?

Looks like their 60K mile introduction. 

Very nice and I like it.

Nice promo Plains, and as rare as they are, it could have well be for dealer/employees only, you would think if they were given away for every set of tires purchased, we would see tons of them on the bay...

Nice package plains - finally picked one up eh? I'm thinking this is the latest - 1960 - model we've seen.

"Promotional "is the ID we settled on for these tire watches.

Agreed, we did previously decide to list these as 'Promotional'.

It'll be great if someone could contact GoodYear and enquire about the history and purpose of these.
