Commercial tire dealer and retreader BestDrive celebrated the opening of four locations in the second half of 2018, including its first store in Oklahoma.
Established in 2010, BestDrive, which focuses on Continental tire offerings, now has 28 commercial tire centers across the USA. Oklahoma marks the company’s 15th US state.
On November 6, the company celebrated the ribbon cutting of its new 25,000ft2 (2,323m2) service center in Oklahoma City. The location will provide new tires and services for customers in the greater Oklahoma City area, as well as supplying ContiTread retread tires produced at the Dallas retread plant.
“I’m excited to be on the ground floor of BestDrive coming to the Oklahoma City market,” said store operations manager Tracy Caine. “We pride ourselves on our product – Continental, General Tire, ContiTread products, and others – and most of all, our focus on customer service.”
The following day, the company inaugurated its Longview, Texas service center. The center is just five minutes from Texas I-20 and is centrally located on South Loop 281, serving local East Texas fleets. It will provide new tires, services, and ContiTread retread tires produced at the Dallas retread plant.
In the second half of 2018, BestDrive acquired a service center in Marietta, Georgia, to support its Forest Park retread plant, and opened a sales office in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to support its retread plant in Salt Lake City.
“BestDrive offers best-in-class service to fleet customers large and small,” said Sonny Simpson, managing director of BestDrive. “With these additional locations in Oklahoma, Texas, Georgia and Idaho, we are able to serve our customers more efficiently and ensure fleets across the country can experience LODC: lowest overall driving cost.”
The company plans to inaugurate additional locations in Texas, California, and Arkansas in the near future, bringing its presence to a total of 17 US states by the end of the first quarter of 2019.
