Requirements regarding winter tyres December 1st to March 31st:
If travelling to or through Sweden with a vehicle such as a passenger car or heavy truck, the driver has to make sure the tyres on the vehicle are winter tyres (definition below). These requirements apply to both light and heavy vehicles, as well as for vehicles registered in Sweden and abroad.
A definition of winter tyres
Winter tyres can be studded or non-studded so called friction tyres. The tyres must be
- especially manufactured for winter road conditions and
- marked with M+S, M-S, M.S., M&S, MS or Mud and Snow.
Note: There are occurrences with tyres marked with M and S that are not especially manufactured for winter road conditions, but for terrain driving.
As you can’t tell from looking at the tyres if they’re especially manufactured for winter road conditions, the Scandinavian Tire and Rim Organization, STRO, and Däckbranschens Informationsråd have created lists of allowed winter tyres.
Summer tyres have a mixture of rubber that makes them too hard during cold weather. That’s why you should use winter tyres when the temperature is around the freezing point and below.
PS: A new legislation include all HCV, trucks, tractors, trailors and semi-trailers as of the upcoming winter 2019-2020.
