Winter Tires Policy

 

Winter Tires Policy

I'm asking on behalf of a FA member, JMorgan, who asked:

"We are looking to update our tire policy to cover snow tires (such as the storage and areas for where the snow tires would be in use). Does anyone have an existing tire policy that covers snow tire that you can share? Thanks for your help!"

All-wheel drive (AWD) or four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles are provided if the Employee’s home and/or assigned territory requires more than 50% of time in "heavy snow" regions

--Heavy snow regions are areas that regularly receive 48 or more inches of snow per year according to National Climatic Data Center records

Front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles are provided in all other cases, unless only available in AWD/4WD (i.e. Subaru brand vehicles) or an excess vehicle being reassigned by the Company

All vehicles are equipped with "All-Season" tires

Regions that regularly receive 30 or more inches of snow per year are considered "moderate snow" regions and drivers of FWD vehicles in such regions will be provided, upon request, 1 set of snow tires, including wheel rims and winter rated tires, during the life cycle of the vehicle

--The all-season tires and rims are considered the primary set of tires

--It is the Driver’s responsibility to ensure the alternate set of tires and wheel rims are stored in a secure location when not in use

--Drivers must also adhere to the Lessor’s recommendations regarding timing of use, however, winter tires should generally not be placed on the vehicle before November 15, nor remain on the vehicle beyond March 30

Hi Krasnick, would you be willing to share your company's (winter) Tire policy with us?

Thanks!
