No more studs - deadline to remove tires approaches

BREWER, Maine (WABI) - If you have studded snow tires on your car, you'll need to change them out soon.

State law requires studded tires to be removed by May 1st.

You can get them removed at any tire place but folks from Twin City Tire in Brewer say you'll want to call ahead wherever you go.

Kirk Storman, of Twin City Tire says, "It's extremely busy because everybody is trying to cram in and get everything done before May. Snow tires can stay on but a lot of people do switch them off because they wear out faster in the summer. We do recommend that at least a good all season would suffice."

Leaving studded tires beyond the end of this month is not only illegal, it's bad for the roads and your car.
