Goodyear's police tyres contract extended

GOODYEAR has retained its contract with the Home Office to supply tyres to all of Britain's police forces until at least the end of 2001. The original tyre supply contract was first signed in 1994 and was extended in 1997.

Members of Goodyear's Hi-Q retailing partnership, which has more than 420 depots throughout the UK, will continue to help provide Britain's police forces with a round-the-clock service fitting tyres to patrol cars, four-wheel-drive vehicles, light trucks and high performance pursuit cars. The police will be using a fast-growing number of Goodyear tyres featuring the company's run-flat technology, Extended Mobility Technology (EMT), which allows motorists to continue driving for up to 50 miles at 50mph if one or even all four tyres are deflated.
