It all began in 1952, in a little western town called Prineville, Oregon, where an enterprising young man named Les Schwab started out with one small tire store. From the get-go, he recognized that anybody can sell tires: it was earning customer trust that takes more.
Les’ vision for his company was built on principles that still guide what we do.
This service ethic is what’s behind the growth Les Schwab Tire Centers has enjoyed over the course of more than 60 years. With over 480 locations, we’re one of the largest independent tire dealers in the country. And we’re like no other.
We never lose sight of our core values. As Les used to say, “Our business is earning your trust.”
