Studs deadline is

Friday, May 15

Oregon drivers will not be required to remove studded tires until 11:59 p.m. Friday, May 15, the Oregon Department of Transportation has announced.

The deadline had previously been extended from April 1 to May 1.

While studded tires are allowed in Oregon by law from Nov. 1 through March 31, ODOT decided to again extend that deadline in response to the continuing public health emergency of COVID-19.

ODOT encourages drivers to have their studded tires removed before May 15, if it can reasonably be done while maintaining social distancing.
