New winter laws from Sweden 05 February 2010

The 2009/2010 Winter Tyre Guide from Continental Tyres has been updated to include new winter laws that have been imposed in Sweden concerning light commercials, heavy trucks, and coaches.

New regulations, as of December last year, stipulate that between 1 December and 31 March, tyre tread depth must be at least 3mm for light trucks, and 5mm for vehicles over 3.5 tonne gvw.

The regulation does not apply to trailers. For more information, go to
