Tulsa Tread Connection owner & operator, Forrest Green.
In this age of efficiency and on-demand service, most anything can be delivered to our doors with only a few clicks or a phone call. Why should the tire buying experience be any different? Tread Connection is gaining traction as the most innovative and time-saving way to equip a vehicle with new tires or tire repair, providing service in Tulsa and the surrounding area.
Owner and operator, Forrest Green, purchased his franchise with Tread Connection based on the excellent customer service that the company provided him, and his extensive training and experience in mechanics as an active guard member in the U.S. Army. Forrest is proud to provide a veteran-owned business offering a “full on-site tire shop,” all encompassed in a mobile unit, providing direct to customer tire installs and wheel balancing, as well as flat repairs. “It’s not just convenient, but more cost-effective,” said Forrest. “I don’t have the overhead of a building, and all that entails, so I can pass those savings on to my customers.”
The Tread Connection van is a marvel in its own right, with the latest and greatest technology from around the world inside, ready to quickly and efficiently meet the needs of his customers. The mobile unit enables delivery and service anywhere, or anytime his customers may need him, whether at home or work. Forrest currently is the only Tread Connection provider in the state of Oklahoma. “I’ll always go the extra mile to ensure the best customer service,” said Forrest. “My customers receive more individualized and personal service since I only focus on one customer at a time. It’s unlike anything you’ll find in a local tire shop.”
The revolutionary equipment inside the mobile operation includes the Corgi 5000; a tire changing and balancing machine from Italy. It boasts touch-free technology that protects the rims of the wheel and provides more than double the average on balance points. “It’s the absolute best out there,” said Forrest. “We can efficiently and quickly change all tires, from low profile high-performance to the blown-out tire on the family van.”
