Drivers have an extra two weeks to remove their studded tires this year.
The deadline to remove them is April 16, according to the state Department of Transportation. It was extended because forecasts show possible winter driving conditions through Easter weekend, which is a popular day for travel.
Studded tires are legal in Washington from Nov. 1 to March 31 unless an extension is granted.
Officials recommend removing studded tires sooner than later if you’re not planning to driver Easter weekend since tire stores are likely to be busiest as the removal deadline gets closer.
