The winter still to become however from October 15th opens the technical window for replace car tires from summer to winter. One month to be ready. In fact, starting from November 15th, the obligation of winter equipment is triggered on a large part of the Italian road and motorway network. On the sections, however, there is a vertical road sign indicating the obligation of winter tires or chains on board with the period provided for this provision. So anyone who owns winter tires or intends to buy them has a month to mount them.
Those who choose the chains must first check the use and maintenance booklet that the tires and rims fitted to the car are compatible. If not only snow tires? No, there are alternative solutions like the external chains, upright with attachment to the hub (the spiders) or stockings. Those who own 4 season tires no problem, free movement. Attention, in case of circulation without winter devices sanctions are triggered: from 41 euros in urban centers, from 80 on the motorway, as well as 3 driving license points.
