marioff 23 Oct 2012 #1Hi,I am driving to Poland for two weeks in Christmas time, and I won't be using my car while I am there, but I am now curious what is the actual law in terms of wearing winter tyres, I have checked couple of online guides and apparently you have to have winter tyres when you drive through Germany, but this only affects wintry conditions, and yes what does it mean? I will be traveling only on their motorways / autobahns and I take the motorways are pretty much in good condition through out the year anyway. So my question is what if my car will have only summer tyres (3 months old) and I will keep the tyre chains in the boot for extreme conditions, will I have any trouble with it? I don't really want to change all my tyres and then change them again when I'm back in the UK. Do you have any experience with it?
