Laws in both states say driving with studded tires after March 31 is against the law. In Washington, it could result in a $124 ticket, according to WDOT.

WDOT said studs can wear down pavement, so removing them promptly helps extend the lifetime of state roadways. Tire dealers in these states, beware! Tire removal services can get crowded as the deadline approaches.

Other states may have later deadlines for removing studded tires. For example, drivers in Montana have until May 31 to remove studs in Montana while Nevada requires drivers to remove them by April 30.
