Best Tire Value Promise

  • Free Air Checks

Considered the best overall studless snow tire available, the Observe Gsi-5 delivers a safe, secure ride in challenging conditions, even slushy, snowy, rutted roads. With sizes for passenger cars, light trucks, crossovers and SUVs, this winter tire has a directional tread design for stability and improved traction during braking and acceleration. Large, saw-toothed tread blocks and the ultimate in siping technology ensure maximum grip for cornering and stopping. The specialized rubber contains walnut shell for added snow and ice traction and remains soft in extreme cold. Wide lateral grooves clear slush out of the tread with efficiency for greater control.

Owners of the Observe Gsi-5 rate it above other winter tires they’ve tried, and praise its extended tread wear, the way it bulldozes through snow conditions, and the smooth ride. This is a tire for the driver who wants confident winter handling no matter what’s happening with the weather.

Best Tire Value Promise

If your Les Schwab tires are damaged by a road hazard, rest assured, our Equal Value Protection plan has you covered. If one of your tires needs to be replaced, we will give you a discount on the replacement tire based on the amount of warranty mileage remaining on the damaged tire. This way, you are only ever paying for the amount of life you get out of your tire.

And, you never have to pay extra to get Equal Value Protection. We won’t try to sell you any extra warranties or coverage certificates. That guarantee, as well as the free services you see above, are all part of our Best Tire Value Promise.
