Let me just start that I am just as uphold as anyone else buy the way the Les Schwab tire prices have gone through the roof and that I believe there is a way to keep those prices as low as possible if you know what you should ask for. The thing is that the one thing Les Schwab is most famous for, their friendly and efficient nature can be at times their most mortal enemy. That is because they assume that you want the best quality and safety system for your car and they are not willing to let you walk out their shop without that. So in the Les Schwab tire prices you are paying for so much more than just the tires.
For example, now that the winter is drawing near, if you were to look at the Les Schwab tire prices you would notice that they also include the price for a siping the tires. I have already written about this process here, but the point is that they found they can make groves in the rubber of your tires, grooves that do not affect in any way the life span of your tire but that improve the braking efficiency of your car. Now that may seem like something great that anyone would want on their car and, in fact, as you would walk away safely from that near death accident you would probably be ever so grateful to the guys from Les Schwab. However when you are handed the bill you will be surprise to see that you are charged more than you used to. So the question becomes what are the advantages of using Les Schwab tire siping technology and should you make the effort to pay for it knowing that your Les Schwab tire prices will grow because of it.
I can honestly tell you that I am perfectly happy to see those Les Schwab tire prices grow ever so bigger if I can add this extra safety feature to my car. And then again I do drive very fast and I must admit that this might not be something you would be happy to do if your style of driving is on the extra safe side. I mean there actually is no point in paying extra for the siping technology if you are never going to use it. However I do use it and it is for people like me that Les Schwab’s motto of not selling something that they can’t guarantee that makes the most sense and the reason why I am willing to pay as much as takes no matter how high the Les Schwab tire prices might go.
Particularly because they are also only bringing in the best merchandise and so as the Les Schwab tire prices grow so do the expectations you can have from them. I know personally from an Les Schwab engineer the story of how Les Schwab actually stop dealing with one of their oldest partners because they decided to outsource their tire manufacture to a factory in China that was known to create substandard products. So when you are considering the Les Schwab tire prices remember that you are also paying for the best quality products on the market.
