BestDrive LLC Buys Brahler's Trucker Supply | Construction News

Commercial tire dealer and retreader BestDrive LLC recently purchased Brahler’s Trucker Supply Inc. The seven service locations in Illinois and eastern Missouri, including one retread shop, continues the increasing expansion of Continental Tire’s BestDrive commercial tire and retread service network throughout the United States and North America.

Founded more than 40 years ago in Meredosia, Ill., Brahler’s has been a commercial tire and retreading company that offers alignments, new tire sales, industrial tires, and tire management programs, as well as many other products and services.

Under the guidance of Brahler’s organizational head Richard Brahler, the former Brahler’s locations will continue to offer these high quality services and products under the BestDrive banner.

The new BestDrive shops employ approximately 100 employees across all seven service and retread locations. BestDrive outlets carry multiple brands of radial truck tires as well as Continental commercial vehicle tires, Continental specialty tires, ContiPressureCheck and commercial tire pressure monitoring systems. BestDrive will continue to utilize the state-of-the-art Brahler’s retread facilities, transitioning from the Marangoni retread process to the preferred ContiLifeCycle (CLC) process.

Other BestDrive operations are located in Arizona, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Michigan. BestDrive LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Continental Tire the Americas LLC.
