Headed to snow? Studded tires legal Nov. 1 in Oregon, Washington

Studded tires are legal again starting Saturday on roadways in Oregon and Washington.

Both states allow studs from Nov. 1 through March 31, although most transportation officials would prefer drivers to use all-weather tires or chains when it snows.

They say studded tires cause millions of dollars of damage to highways and bridge decks.
