Studded Tire Deadline Extended Again

The deadline to remove your studded tires has been extended again. You now have through April 25 to remove them.

The Washington State Department of Transportation made the extention because forecasts call for possible winter driving conditions across the mountain passes and in the state’s higher elevations.

Studded tires are legal in Washington Nov. 1-March 31, unless WSDOT grants an extension. Today’s announcement marks the third extension this year, and WSDOT officials don’t anticipate any further extensions beyond April 25.
