ContiLifeCycle Delivers Innovative Tools and Tire Technology

Conlan Tire

Conlan Tire, a rapidly growing tire dealership and retreader with eight locations in Florida, has been part of the ContiLifeCycle network since the chain was founded in March 2017. Owner Alex Conlan saw partnership with Continental as a way to offer a complete package to his fleet customers.

“It’s pretty attractive from the fleet side having [a tire dealer] say, ‘Hey, here’s your pricing on steer tires, here’s the performance you can expect, and here’s the retread to go along with it. And we also know the importance of maintaining air pressure; here’s a system that can monitor your air pressure for you.’ So for me, it’s about the tools that Continental offers,” says Conlan.

To me, it’s pretty critical to have more of an offering to partner with a fleet to lower their overall costs per mile.

He uses the digital solutions and data services in the Continental portfolio, such as the VDO RoadLog ELD, ContiPressureCheck™ tire pressure monitoring system, and ContiConnect™ digital tire monitoring, as a way to open doors with customers. “We can go in there and offer that service and get our foot in the door, and then they get to know us,” Conlan explains. “It helps us sell tires. To me, it’s pretty critical to have more of an offering… to partner with a fleet to lower their overall costs per mile.”

In the end, Conlan Tire is focused on delivering excellent service to their customers, and they expect the same from their retread partner. “The support we get from you all is unbelievable,” he claims. “And that’s from the top down. Continental realizes the expertise that our retread shop possesses, the sales team has worked hard turning in business with us, I think the tread rubber is great, and what’s more exciting than anything is the technically advanced solutions [Continental] has… I knew we’d have that synergy.”
