Well folks I got a question for yall.
I was told by a tech at Northtown Jeep that studded snow tires (like they put on for me without a comment
) are illegal in ERIE county.
I was very confused since I know that studs are legal in NYS from Oct 15 to April 30. My dad has run them at home (Ithaca) for nearly 8 years now. We live in a very hilly area, bad plowing, lots of freezing precip, etc. And we used to live in Buffalo when I was younger and my dad knew a couple of guys running studs on their trucks' snow tires then.
Now I'm not concerned or anything, my car isn't registered here, my license shows my address as Ithaca, but I can't find anything online regarding county specific laws for studs. All I see is stud dates from the NYS DMV website.
Is this guy making stuff up? I can't really imagine this being true, he also mentioned that studs have been illegal since before I was born. I probably look like I'm in my early 20s so...
