My family bought two sets of the recap tires, spent over $650. Was told that they would warranty the tires if the recap came off. We haven't had the tires for 6 months and 2 tires have already gone bad. When I went back for the warranty, Leslie's no longer carries those tires!

When the first tire went bad they offered me a discount on a new set, but would not let me keep the other tires. Now a tire on the other vehicle went bad within two weeks and I am in the same boat. Won't be offered a deal this time because I was a little hateful with the person in charge!

I would not recommend using Leslie's Tires! They used to carry decent tires for a great price. Now they have worse used tires and wont stand behind their word.

I feel like organizing a picket line to let the community know how awful a business they are!!!

That's why you're buying all the time, you're buying recaps. I guess you get what you pay for. Pay for recaps, you'll get recaps.

Wow didn't know you could buy recapped tires. They are illegal in Calif. We had Leslie's recommened to us for used tires for a truck and when the used tire went flat within a week they replaced it for us and were very nice.

Anyone who would put recaps on the front of the vehicle is a nut..Recaps on cars never hold ..only the big rigs should use them and then the hot part of the summer they blow out alot..Stay Away from Recaps...

I bought tires from their Monticello store. I was treated right, got a good price for tires. I got a better deal from them than any where else. I didn't realize you could still purchase re-caps.

Did you ever wonder what they do with the used tires they charge you to dispose of. If they are not too bad they sell them to retread companies at a good profit.

Here is a quote from a retread company.

"Now, most of us may not have heard about retread tires until we accidentally stumbled upon it while researching for cheap or even used tires. Now, from the way it sounds, one can naturally assume that retread tires are inferior to new tires, and that itís not worth considering. However, nothing could be further from the truth. If you do a thorough, unbiased research online, including some the the links listed on our site, Iím certain you will come to a better understanding of this little known industry and perhaps give retread tires a chance."

I purchased tires from leslies for years. I have had well over 8 sets of tires from them for 5 diferent 4wheel drive rides. I have never paid more than $575 and i love BIG tires. He has NEVER offered me a set of recaps. Why would you buy recaps for a street ride anyway? Those are only good for farm use? I do not believe you have dealt with the real Leslies tire.

Aren't retreads that part of the tire you see littering the sides of every highway in the US? Not sure but if it is then I would consider that bad advertising.

Leslie Tires are the best place to get tires and they stand behind their warranty!! Now there is a place called Les Tires that even if you purchase new tires you get no warranty you even have to pay extra for rotating and bal;ancing them.

That place off Monticello St. is cleaned out and closed up - Went there once to price a new set , only one man working , didn't have time to look up the tires , went across street to Benders ,(now John's Auto), taken care of promptly -
