BestDrive LLC, a Continental tire and ContiLifeCycle commercial tire dealer and retreader, has opened its first location in Idaho.

The company celebrated the new location at an open house on June 6, 2017.

The new commercial truck tire, off-the-road and industrial tire service center location is centrally located at S Transport Street in Boise to service the increasing demand from fleet customers.

“Opening this center in Boise is especially exciting, as it further solidifies our strategy to provide continuous and consistent coverage to our fleet customers. We must be where they are to meet their needs,” says Sonny Simpson, managing director for BestDrive.

The newest BestDrive outlet is near I-84. The company says the new shop and service center continues the increasing expansion of the Continental Tire and ContiLifeCycle retread service network throughout the United States and the rest of North America.

“This is a great opportunity to expand the BestDrive commitment to product and service excellence,” says Joe Shannon, manager of the newest BestDrive outlet. “We look forward to increasing our footprint throughout southern Idaho as we continue to provide outstanding service to our fleet, commercial and agricultural partners.”
