Les Schwab Has Tires for Your Electric Vehicle

Plugging in instead of pulling up to the pump has its advantages. Today’s electric vehicles (EVs) are low maintenance, fun to drive, and promote a green future without spending too much green. But you still need tires. Les Schwab carries the specialized tires you need for your EV. That includes all-season tires, off-road options, winter tires, and tires specially designed for e-powered performance.

Electric Vehicle Tires FAQs

Learn what you need to know about EV-appropriate tires at Les Schwab.

Q: Do Electric Vehicles Need Special Tires?
The right tires for EVs have a lower rolling resistance for added range and higher load index to support the added weight. Additionally, EV-appropriate tires help with overall performance thanks to specialized tread and rubber compounds. This same tread, along with a tire foam insert (found in some tires) can also reduce road noise and improve ride comfort.

Q: Can EVs Use Regular Tires?
Yes, as long as the tires have a higher load index to withstand the heavier loads and instant torque. Additionally, tires that meet or exceed your EV’s original equipment (OE) specifications are often designed to minimize road noise and help you enjoy a smooth, quiet ride.

Q: Do tires last as long for EVs as they do for other vehicles?
As with larger SUVs and trucks, the number of miles you get from a set of tires on an EV may be reduced when compared to lighter passenger vehicles.

Q: What Tire/Wheel Services Do We Offer For Electric Vehicles?
The Les Schwab pros can help you pick the appropriate tires for your EV. We’ll show you all of the options, including size and compatibility, range expectations, traction and grip, as well as noise, comfort, and price.

Q: Do Les Schwab Stores Have Any Charging Stations?
As more Americans buy and drive EV vehicles, charging stations will appear in more communities and Les Schwab locations.
