These people tried to sell me two new tires for the front of my car when all I wanted them to do was rotate them to the back until payday, when I could afford a whole new set of tires. They quoted me a non-existent law that said it prevented them from rotating the tires when they were below the legal treadwear, and I said, that's my deal, I'm not going to hold you responsible, now just rotate them please. They said no, we have to sell you two new tires by law, and I called BS on that one. Defensive, combative and aggressive posture by these people and very unnerving.

Went to Discount tire about a mile away, they said there is no such law, and they rotated the tires for free--and they weren't even their tires. Next payday I went to Discount to buy my new Pirelli's and crossed Les Schwab off my list permanently. I can't stand being lied to. You can fool some of the people, Les Schwab employees, but not this Irishman. If the real LesSchwab, the man, were alive today, he would have kicked your ass for that, guys. Don't believe those lying Les Schwab commercials: the "other guys" DO care, and what's more important, i TRUST them more than Les Schwab. A lot more.

I bought 4 new near the top of the line tires for my Toyota Corolla, having just traveled round trip to Guadalajara Mexico.

In Guadalajara I had my hubcaps attached with screws and wire so they wouldn't be stolen.

Lake City Les Schwab broke off ALL FOUR HUBCAPS - it required real effort to brake them all - then they claimed they didn't do it! They think customers are idiots!

Refused to either replace the hubcaps or pay me the approx. $100 each to replace the Toyota brand hubcaps.

My best friend came back with me to ask them politely AGAIN to be honest and pay me or replace the hubcaps but they refused.

We left - PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE RIPOFF PEOPLE on LAKE CITY. Les Schwabs are generally good but these owners in LAKE CITY SUCK!!!

So now I drive around with no hubcaps and a broken one in the trunk so I can show people what they did. What JERKS.

Pros: too expensive of tires - shop around - don't go here

Cons: Broke all my hubcaps by force and lied about it

I bought my tires at this store in January 2003 and not only have the tires performed incredibly well (and are still in great shape), but the service since my purchase has been over the top. My sister (who lives in LA) even makes fun of me for gushing about this place, even before what happened today.

I had a flat tire this morning, called them up, and requested that they come to my house to put the spare on. I was quoted a reasonable price for them to come out and do this service and I said OK. The guy comes out and within minutes the spare is on and we are on our way to the store (which is luckily close by).

Within 5 minutes of me showing up, they tell me that the valve was leaking, that they have replaced it, and that they have looked at all my other tires and they are fine too. So I happily walk up to the counter to pay and the guy who came to my house waved me off and told me there was NO CHARGE!! I was so shocked I just mumbled "you guys are awesome" and walked out.

And today is not the only day that they have demonstrated great service. My repair shop lately has been trying to get me to buy new tires since mine are "old" so I got a second opinion at the Lake City store and they said my tires have probably years left of wear. They have NEVER tried to sell me items or services that I don't need. They just provide honest service that always exceeds my expectations.

I took my car in because it had a slow leak. They fixed it and charged me nothing. I will definitely use these guys the next time I need tires.

I know these guys try hard but they blew it with my battery repair. The battery was too small and they did not put in the plastic lifter underneath the battery. My battery cable came off and my car was dead. Fortunately I was able to push it back on. I took it in and they tightened it and were suppose to call me but never did. I also noticed they had cut the plastic battery case trying to get the cable to fit better. The bastards!

During the snow storm in 2008, I bought some new SUV tires Toyo HT from Les Schawb on Lake City. I called and got availability and pricing right on the phone. I went in a 7:30 am on a Sat morning and was out the door in one hour!

The price quoted was actually higher than my final bill. I found them to be friendly, fast and honest. I would highly recommend them. My tires are correctly balanced and ride like a gem!

I went there for brake service and waited for 3 hours for them to fix my rear brakes. During that time, about 20 people came in after me and left before me. I will never go there to that specific Les Schwab again.

I had my studs pulled the day before and when I woke I went straight to the freeway. I did not realize my left front tire had gone flat overnight. By going straight to high speeds I quickly destroyed my tire. I presented the disheveled mess to them and explained my situation. They replaced my tire free of charge no questions asked. It turned a devastating day into a better one. Thank you Les Schwab.

Pros: Great quality and professional care.

Cons: you pay a bit more but the customer service is worth it.

I am truly sceptical of places that advertise heavily so I was pretty cynical on my first visit to a Les Schwab to possibly buy tires. They earned the chance at my business when they repaired a flat tire for free in the middle of nowhere Oregon last summer - turns out it's a company policy no matter where you bought your tires. I was price shopping and was not surprised when they recommended their most expensive tires for my Subaru AWD wagon. At that time, they came with a no questions asked 30 day guarantee if I didn't like them - for any reason! Salesperson knew her product and claimed they had yet to ever have a set returned at their store under the return policy. We were leaving for Wyoming in a few days with 2 kayaks on the roof and 2 weeks of camping gear in the back so I figured what better way to test them out - loved them! I figure I've worn out a lot of tires in my 3 decades of driving and these really are great tires, road or snow and I wouldn't have even thought about buying them without the company's standing behind their product. The service was great, they were really busy that morning but I was still in and out in 45 minutes. Highly recommended.

Cons: can get really busy, call ahead to check the wait time

We got new tired for our SUV here and they were really great to work with! the tires they recommended wre just what we were looking for and have been very good to us. They were very helpful and friendly and really made the trip to the tire store enjoyable. The service was fast and efficient as well!
