Studded tire season won’t be extended

Studded tires should be removed by Sunday. Given the current weather forecasts, ODOT does not plan to extend the Oregon studded tire season. ODOT encourages drivers not to wait until the deadline if they aren’t driving in snow between now and then.

Studded tires should be removed by Sunday. Given the current weather forecasts, ODOT does not plan to extend the Oregon studded tire season. ODOT encourages drivers not to wait until the deadline if they aren’t driving in snow between now and then.

 The state departments of transportation in Oregon and Washington are coordinating studded tire season closing dates to make travel rules consistent.

 ODOT encourages drivers to consider other types of traction tires or chains. A study completed in 2000 concluded studded tires cause at least $40 million damage each year on city streets, county roads and state highways. 

Other types of traction tires are available. These traction tires meet Rubber Manufacturers Association standards for use in severe snow conditions and carry a special symbol on the tire sidewall showing a three-peaked mountain and snowflake. 

Research shows these tires provide better traction than studded tires when used on bare pavement.
