Winter tire are mandatory for commercial vehicles.
It is not mandatory for private vehicles but the Property Section strongly recommend to change to winter tires due the hills and geography of Ankara.
Looking for a garage? I suggest Class Oto, I went for a car problem last month and the owner Mr Mahir speaks English and he can help you to find winter tires for all models of cars. Give him a call or send him a WhatsApp message : 0532 264-5171.
Without winter tires it is not safe to travel with your vehicle if the weather is below “zero” and/or snowy.
A colleague kindly provided a picture of his own accident! The white car in the middle was his 2 month old car…
and he did not had winter tires. 😦
