Article written by Bush Tyres Michelin PRIMACY 3 tyres For Ford Mondeo Zetec Edition

The Bush Tyres Group are proud to be a trusted supplier to the emergency services. Not only Police Cars, but we also provide tyres to the Ambulance Service and Fire brigade.

Ford Mondeo Zetec Edition TDCI

Around the country the Police use a variety of different vehicles depending on their uses, from compact cars like the Fiat 500 all the way up to larger SUVs such as the BMW X5.

This Ford Mondeo estate was chosen as it is ideal for its use as a ‘Dog unit.’ With ample space in the rear for members of the K9 division.

It has very little other modifications other than the installation of the Police computer, hazard lighting, safety livery and communication devices. The otherwise mechanically standard Mondeo can perform all the required duties when coupled with a specially trained Advanced Driver behind the wheel.

Michelin PRIMACY 3 Tyres

One thing the police force recognises, is the importance of good quality tyres for their road cars. The police vehicles are exempt from annual MOT inspection as they are more stringently checked, thoroughly and more frequently due to high-speed driving.

The tyres are checked for pressure and condition by their drivers daily, or before every use. When they spot a defect or notice any underinflation they turn to our tyre experts at locations throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and beyond.

For this Mondeo the team at Allround tyres in Rotherham changed all 4 tyres due to low tread depths. The tyre of choice, the Michelin PRIMACY 3, seen here in 235/50ZR17 96W, front and rear.

The PRIMACY 3 was awarded the “best in category” for excellent performance on wet roads in 2015 and 2018 by ADAC (German equivalent of the AA).

The PRIMACY 3 is a premium road tyre with excellent performance on wet roads for those occasional showers. The tyre is best suited for commuting driving or longer trips.

The tyres have high longevity also thanks to a very abrasion resistant compound and optimized contact patch. This distributes pressure and heat more evenly allowing the tyres to be longer lasting than other alternatives.

The PRIMACY 3 is available in 58 sizes currently from 16-19” applications.

If you are looking for Michelin Tyres for your own vehicle, we have these, along with all other major tyre manufacturers to suit any make and model, available at our local branches.
