SALEM, Ore. – Drivers with studded tires can keep using them awhile longer. The annual deadline for removing studded tires had been the end of the day Saturday, but that’s been extended through Monday April 9. Still, transportation officials say studded tires chew up streets and roads and cause $40 million a year in damage. Chains or other traction tires should be considered.
