State says studded tires must go by Sunday

Drivers have until Sunday, March 31, to remove studded tires from their vehicles.

Studded tires are legal in Oregon from Nov. 1 to March 31. The season wasn’t extended this year, something that has happened in the past during inclement weather.

A 2000 state study concluded that studded tires cause at least $40 million damage each year on streets, roads and highways.
