BestDrive, a commercial tire dealer and retreader focused on Continental tire offerings, has opened its new facility in Commerce City outside Denver, Colorado, in the USA.
Established in 2010, BestDrive now has 22 commercial tire centers across the USA and plans to expand into eight additional states by the end of 2018.
The 18,400ft2 retail and service space is expected to bring US$4m-US$5m in sales to the city annually. Strategically located near the intersection of I-25, I-76, I-70 and I-270, it provides excellent access for long-haul, regional haul, and on/off-road fleet customers.
“A consistent factor when selecting locations is that it must be easily accessible to our customer, and our Denver dealership is no exception,” said Sonny Simpson, managing director of BestDrive.
“Our growth strategy requires that we have an appropriate national footprint capable of providing continuous and seamless coverage across the nation.”
New tires and ContiTread retreads manufactured in the nearby BestDrive Salt Lake City plant will be distributed from the facility as well as mechanical services.
BestDrive general manager TJ Atwood commented, “First and foremost, I’m excited about the ability to bring the Continental retread product ContiTread to the market. This gives customers an option for retreading that they’ve never had before.
“I’m also excited about the innovative products we’ll be able to offer from Continental, like truck tires from the Continental, General Tire, and Ameri*Steel brands, ContiPressureCheck tire monitoring, and RoadLog ELD.”
Atwood added, “Commerce City and Denver sit at the natural cross-roads in the region. Our dealership location places us in the best possible position to service our national fleet customers while also servicing the local fleets that operate there.”
