Studded Tire Deadline Extended Again

Officials have extended the studded tire deadline one week for the second time this year. Washington Drivers must now remove their studded tires by the end of the day Thursday, April 14.

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) extended the studded tire deadline because forecasts call for continued winter driving conditions across the mountain passes and higher-elevation areas in eastern Washington. Drivers in lower elevations who have no plans to travel across the passes are asked to remove their studded tires before April 14.

Studded tires are legal in Washington from Nov. 1 March 31, unless the deadline is extended.

Studded tires are legal in Idaho until April 30.

I'm trying to keep studded tires in stock for your winter riding pleasure. My favorites are the Schwalbe line up. There's just nothing better. However, the USA warehouse is back-ordered on several models. Long and short, call or write and ask me what I've got in stock before you drop by.
