OLYMPIA — Studded tires are now in season.
Drivers could put on their studded tires as of Tuesday. They can remain on cars through March 31.
Motorists purchasing studded tires this year will notice a new $5-per-tire fee enacted by the state Legislature on all new studded tire purchases.
Money collected goes to the state motor vehicle fund for roadway work.
Some vehicle manufacturers recommend against the use of tire chains for certain vehicle models.
The State Patrol provides a list of approved, alternative-traction devices that are acceptable when chains or traction tires are required.
