For snowy climates, I think studded snow tires are the greatest invention. When I have had them it was a total game-changer even if they require a little extra attention.

When are studded snow tires allowed?

In Maine, you can only have on your vehicle from October 1st to May 1st.

Well, friends, May 1st is right around the corner so you need to put swapping out your tired on your to-do list.

Why do studded snow tires need to be taken off?

Take a look at those tires…those studs are meant to dig into the snow and ice. Without the snowy, icy winter weather the studs can actually cause damage to the roads.

So if for some reason you still have those bad-boys on your car or truck make a plan to get them swapped over to your summer or all-season tires.
