Does France require Winter tyres by law?
If you have a bump in France in winter and you are without winter tyres, are you determined to be automatically at fault?
If so, I would be looking at something with the 3 peak mountain snowflake symbol on the side. Maybe The Nokian AllWeather or Goodyear equivalent?
Don't think France has it enforced by law. I have family who live in the foothills of the Pyrenees so always back and forth to there from Saint Malo. (I live in Guernsey.). So not after a all out winter tyre, but something thats not going to **** itself at the first sign of snow/ice.
