Driving in the US with studded winter tires

Every state has different rules for driving with studded winter tires.  Some states prohibit the use of studded winter tires, most have seasonal limitations. Many states that prohibit, or seasonally limit  the use of studs do not allow exceptions for non-residents who are passing through or visiting. If you are caught in a state that prohibits the use of studded winter tires, you may face fines, penalties or other legal problems.  Please be sure to check with current laws in each state or province before travelling with studded winter tires on your vehicle.
