Les Schwab tires are sold at Les Schwab Tire Centers across the western United States. As of 2015, Les Schwab is one of the largest independent tire dealers in the U.S., with over 450 retail locations in nine states.
Les Schwab bought his first tire store in 1952 in Prineville, Oregon. His principle visions for his company were to provide honest advice, do the job right, stand behind his work and share his success with his employees. He was so successful he expanded to over 100 locations by 1979. Although Les passed away in 2007, his company enjoys continued success and employs over 7,000 people.
