When Can I have Studded Snow Tires on in Tahoe City, California
One question I’m often asked as a local Tahoe City REALTOR is when can I have studded snow tires on my car in Tahoe City, California? It’s a great question, especially once it starts to snow here!
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 want to have studded snow tires on our cars have to make a tire change twice a year.
We are well into November, and so far it’s been a very mild fall with only one snow storm, but it will snow and your time is running out to get your studded snow tires back on your car.
Yesterday was the day I changed out my summer tires for my trusty studded snow tires in anticipation of the snowy Tahoe City winter weather to come. I love having the studded snow tires on my car and I can’t imagine going through a Tahoe City winter without them!
Not everyone knows what to do, or where to go if you want studded snow tires on your car, or you may studded snow tires, but you don’t know where to take them to have them put back on.
I took my car to the local Tahoe City Chevron Station. They do a great job and they were happy to work me into their schedule.
In addition to changing my tires, they replaced my windshield wipers, checked and refilled both my antifreeze and windshield wiper fluids. All things that I’ll need to have a safe winter driving season.
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 change in the seasons here in Tahoe City, 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 in 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 put on your studded snow tires today. Our first big Tahoe City snow storm is right around the corner!
