A situation that is currently causing problems! What if because of Corona no Change date for the tires is possible. After all, at the moment it is a fact that even the simple replacement of a test sticker on the license plate an appointment booking and an associated waiting time of over 2 weeks brings with it.

Due to the Corona crisis, however, it is sometimes extremely difficult to book a tire change appointment. Many appointments are therefore postponed or people simply continue to drive with winter tires. But is it a problem if the winter tires are still installed and are therefore also used in summer? Or is the use of summer tires mandatory?
Is there a tire requirement?
So far there is still no summer tires mandatory. There is still the same way no duty, on cold days winter tires to use. It was no set a certain period of time that prescribes a certain type of tire.
