BestDrive opens 23rd and 24th commercial tire center in Texas

BestDrive, a commercial tire dealer and retreader focusing on Continental tire offerings, has opened two new tire centers in Texas. Established in 2010, BestDrive – known as Continental BestDrive in Texas – now has 24 commercial tire centers across the United States, with plans to expand into seven additional states by the end of 2019. BestDrive’s tire centers in Dallas suburb Grand Prairie and San Antonio mark the company’s first entry in that state.

The company’s location in Dallas suburb Grand Praire, which opened in May 20, is a 100,000-square-foot retread shop and tire center and will provide new tires, services, and ContiTread retread tires for customers in the Dallas Fort Worth area, as well as manufacturing retreads to supply nearby BestDrive service centers. Strategically located near Texas I-30, it is ideal for access by the company’s long-haul, regional haul, and on/off-road fleet customers. The retread mega-shop has room for up to two additional curing chambers as volume increases.
