Winter tyres are compulsory in Finland as of 1 December. Studded tyres may be used on Finnish roads from 1 November.

This rule also applies to cars and vans registered abroad when they are driven in Finland.

Before fitting tyres, it should be ensured that they are in good condition and compatible with the vehicle and that the tyre pressure is correct. The groove depth of winter tyres must be at least 3.0 millimetres measured in the principle grooves of the tyre pattern.

Winter tyres are compulsory until the end of February and may be used until 20 April.
