Studded Tires Must Be Removed
(POCATELLO) – Beginning today, Idaho law requires all studded winter tires to be replaced. The metal cleats on tires are useful for icy roads when you need traction, but they can tear up roads in the summer if they’re not removed. Costco Tire Center manager Brady Paulson tells Local News 8 that it’s a good time to have winter tires changed, whether they’re studded or not. Montana drivers have until May 31 to remove them, though Wyoming drivers can keep them on year-round.
