Are studded tyres legal in the UK?

Although there is no specific legislation in the UK which references the use of studded tyres, they are generally considered not fit for use in the UK. Correct usage of studded tyres requires thick and even levels of snow on the road. So, under the laws that revolve around suitable use of items on automotive vehicles – studded tyres would most likely be found unsuitable. They also cause damage to the roads, so this too would likely result them being deemed not suitable.
