When You Need Studded Tires in NH and ME
Studded tires are a luxury for some, and a necessity for others. If you frequently drive on roads that are rarely plowed or if you often find yourself driving before the plows have a chance to clear the roads, a studded tire might be perfect for you.
If you drive on busier roads and stick mainly to the highways, a standard winter tire should do the trick. But for some, studded tires give a great sense of traction and control that can take the anxiety out of driving in the winter, especially on the snowy, icy, and slushy roads of New Hampshire and Maine.
When are studded tires legal in New Hampshire / Maine?
In New Hampshire and Maine, studded tires can be a huge help - especially if you frequently drive on roads that are not regularly plowed.
State laws vary when it comes to using studded snow tires. But for our customers it's pretty simple. In Maine, studded tires are permitted from October 1st - May 1st. In New Hampshire, there is no restriction on when you can use studded tires (but to preserve gas mileage and prevent accelerated tire wear, it's best to remove them at the start of spring).
"Do I Need Studded Tires?"
This is a question a lot of our customers have. Winter driving in New Hampshire and Maine can go from easy to treacherous in a matter of moments. For many, studded tires can make a major difference.
Studded tires have a leg up on regular winter tires in packed snow and ice, while sacrificing a small amount of traction on wet and dry roads. They also tend to be noisier than the alternative. Many drivers in New Hampshire and Maine swear by studded tires, and you might too if you frequently drive on unplowed roads, if you live on a hill, or if you have a long driveway that tends to get icy. At the same time, many winter sports lovers also enjoy the peace of mind knowing that they can handle whatever conditions the season serves up on their way to the mountain.
Whether you're a skier that's determined to get to the mountain no matter what or just someone who prefers an added sense of control while driving on snow, studded tires can help - and we have plenty of tires to fit your vehicle.
