WA Studded Tire Deadline Extended Again

If you're one of the folks who commutes to Washington, or just visits, you can keep your studded tires on a little longer. The deadline to remove studs has been extended again. You now have through April 25 to remove them in Washington.

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.

Today’s announcement marks the third extension this year, and WSDOT officials don’t anticipate any further extensions beyond April 25.
