Seattle RV tire installers

Does anyone have recommendations for tire installation shops in the Seattle Area? I know Les Schwab is pretty much everywhere but seeing if there are others around. Tires are for a 2003 Safari Trek so am looking for 245/70R 19.5s

Thanks, Joe

I'm thinking Les Schwab is a good place. At least they were 10 years ago. Lots of stores if you have a problem, and great service.

What's wrong with Les Schwab? They gave us the best price, had all matching dates on them and service was fast. However, why not go to Oregon and save on sales tax? We ordered when we were in Arizona on our way to Alaska and had them installed in Oregon.

If they can get your tires, go to Les Schwab. Good all down the line.

Looks like you might be able to get 19.5s from Tire rack. Call them as their on-line access does not recognize 19.5 as a size.

Good luck with the search. If you find 265s, post back.

Following....same issue, only Les Schwab wants to sell THEIR tires and while Toyo’s come recommended, I was leaning towards Hankook AH-37’s. Schwab’s won’t order or install tires they do not sell. Walmart has a great price, but won’t install anything bigger than 20” rims. (255/70R22.5)

Might be a local store decision. Been to two here in Spokane and I’ve brought in tires from tire rack that they installed. Doing 4 of my trailer tires this weekend and the tpms. Was cautious at first but fixed my sons flat for free and also my truck. I haven’t even bought tires from them before. So they’ve earned my business so far 👍🏼

I bought a set of 6 Double Coin tires from Les Schwab about 10 years ago that worked out great. Road nice, wore like any others and never cracked in the sidewalls like the Michelins did before them. They were 8.00X19.5, same as a lot of P&D trucks use. Made in China, but still good quality as far as I am concerned.

I too use Discount Tire but they told me no on ordering / installing 22.5. I have nothing against Les Schwab and called them just the other day about tires for mine. The only advantage I can see is Discount Tire is nationwide and LS is a west coast company though I imagine they have agreements with other companies throughout the US and Canada for warranty issues.
