Winter tyres in Norway

Norway requires that all heavy motor vehicles must be fitted with winter tyres

From January 2015 Norway requires that all heavy motor vehicles must be fitted with winter tyres with M+S (mud + snow) approval and minimum 5 mm tread depth is mandatory on all axles, including the trailer. This requirement concerns all motor vehicles a permitted total weight of 3,500 kg and all trailers.
