BestDrive Opens Commercial Tire Center in Denver

BestDrive, a commercial tire dealer and retreader focusing on Continental tire offerings, has opened a new commercial tire center in Commerce City outside Denver, Colo.

BestDrive, a commercial tire dealer and retreader focusing on Continental tire offerings, has opened a new commercial tire center in Commerce City outside Denver, Colo.

Established in 2010, BestDrive now has 22 commercial tire centers across the United States, with plans to expand into eight additional states by the end of 2018. Colorado marks the company’s 13th U.S. state.

BestDrive’s Denver tire center is an 18,400-square-foot retail and service space expected to bring $4-5 million in sales to the city annually. Strategically located near the intersection of I-25, I-76, I-70 and I-270, it is ideal for access by its 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.”

The location will offer new tires and mechanical services, as well as distributing ContiTread retreads manufactured in the BestDrive Salt Lake City plant.

Each retread tire saves almost 40 lbs of raw material, including rubber, steel, and carbon black, as well as 15 gallons of oil, according to the Retread Tire Information Bureau (TRIB). The Bureau also calculates that retreading truck tires in the U.S. reduces carbon emissions by 396,000 tons annually, as the retreading process generates 70% less emissions than production of a new tire.

“Continental sees enormous opportunity for BestDrive to offer local sales and service in more locations convenient for our fleet operators, to support both the high demand for retread tires and the local economies of the areas in which our stores are located,” said Steve Postel, Continental’s director of retail for the Americas region.
