It’s that time of year, time to take off your studded snow tires here in Lake Tahoe, California!
If you’re new to California you may not know that we’re not allowed to have studded snow tires on all year long. California Vehicle Code [Section 27454 (e)] permits studded tires to be used on vehicles between November 1 and April 30 of each year, so those of us who have studded snow tires on our cars have to make a tire change twice a year.
Since today is April 30, my car is at the local Chevron making the seasonal tire change from studded snow tires to regular year-around all-weather tires. They do a great job at the Tahoe City Chevron and they were happy to work me into their schedule today.
If you need a place to get your studded snow tires changed call the Tahoe City Chevron at 530.583.0211 and find out when you can bring your vehicle in. They are located at the junction of Highway 89 South and Highway 28 in Tahoe City, California.
While most people use the calendar to signal a changing in the season here in Tahoe, I mark the change in seasons based on what tires are on my SUV. When the studded snow tires are on its late Fall-Winter and when they come off I’m ready to welcome the Tahoe Spring-Summer season.
Studded Snow Tires are allowed in California from
November 1 through April 30 each year.
Don’t forget it’s time to get your studded snow tires off today. Failure to do so can result in a ticket from your local police, so make the change today!
