Studded tire season started Thursday and although local shops were busy, employees said the real rush usually doesn’t happen until the season’s first snowfall.

Oregon limits the use of studded tires because studies have shown that the metal studs that help keep vehicles from sliding on snow- or ice-covered roads also damage the pavement.

The Oregon Department of Transportation estimates studded tires cause $8.5 million in damage yearly.

Studded tires are legal from Nov. 1 through March 31. Occasionally the state extends the legal season for a couple of weeks when winter weather persists.

The fine for driving on studded tires outside the legal season is close to $200.

In Baker City, Lew Brothers Les Schwab, Commercial Tire and Baker Valley Mobile Tire all install studded tires. Although the legal season started Thursday, tire shops can install tires earlier if customers ask.

Lew Brothers manager Jake Pearce said Nov. 1 is busier than an average day, but not the busiest.
