How to process Road Hazard Credit for Returned tires?

It is important to examine each tire closely to determine if it is in fact a road hazard issue, per the definition above including minimal tread depth as listed. 

If the tire does not fit the criteria or does not have at least 3/32 tread depth, we will not issue a Credit Memo for the tire(s).

The formula for calculating how much credit the customer receives is as follows:

You automatically take off 2/32nd’s from the current tread depth

Cost of tire divided by the original tread depth then multiply that by the current tread depth minus 2/32

Example (also see below in NetSuite):

· Cost of tire is $175.00

· Original tread depth is 16/32

· Remaining tread depth is 7/32 – 2/32 = 5/32

· $175.00 divided by 16 = $10.94

· $10.94 multiplied by 5 = $54.70 credit to customer
