Local tire shops seeing big increase in customers

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—Local tire shops say within the past week they've seen a huge increase in customers looking to get their studded tires changed.

One salesman says they see about 100 people a day and thirty of those people are having their tires changed.  However, the increased business also means a longer wait time.

"One good thing to consider before getting those off is giving us a call and letting us know that way we can give you a wait time," says Casey Klunder, Big O Tires.

The tire deadline has been pushed back.  Drivers now have until April 7th to change their studded tires.
