Good Wheels = Good Works

Our local automotive dealerships are connected to their respective communities and committed to supporting them, they support many good causes, from little league baseball teams to community initiatives that reach the poor and needy. They make these contributions every day, whether in the public eye or in the quiet of anonymity. We are an extension of them and assist in one time catastrophic donations.

This tradition of giving is highlighted through the Good Wheels program. The New Car Dealers of Utah Association created Good Wheels to assist with the charitable giving of our generous dealerships.

Criteria:  This is for one time immediate needs. Usually where there is a catastrophic event that happened and there is a need for assistance.

  • One of our dealers helped Carson Tueller, who was injured a trampoline accident that damaged his spinal cord. Bountiful & Orem Mazda, along with our Good Wheels Foundation, delivered a van that provides him the needed freedom to pursue his Paralympic swimming dreams.
  • Amberley Snyder, a World Champion rodeo rider, was paralyzed from the waist down after serious car crash. The Larry H. Miller Used Car Supermarket and Good Wheels Foundation donated a Dodge Dakota to help her continue her education at Snow College and fulfill her rodeo dreams.
  • Good Wheels helps facilitate  DUI Blitz Donations, which helps pay overtime hours for extra Utah Highway Patrol troopers. These hours are used during special DUI Blitz patrols that put additional troopers on patrols to catch drunk drivers. These donations of $5,000, 3–4 times a year on Holidays like New Years and Labor Day put 20 additional troopers on our roads per Blitz and save lives.
