Mandatory winter tyres: From when do you need winter tyres?

Snow and ice can come as a surprise. Winter tyres are now the be-all and end-all for a skid-free and safe journey. There is no specified date for fitting winter tyres. This is dependent on weather conditions, which can last for longer or shorter periods of time from one year to the next. If you want to be on the safe side, you can follow the tried and tested "O-to-E" rule (October to Easter).
