unlikely it's the law in those months - usually it's Nov/Dec to Mar/April

but over high passes it's not unknown to find snow blocking the road - we couldn't get over the Col de Tourmalet one September due to heavy snowfall but it's not that common.

if you have space, throw them in - it won't hurt

and the Lord said unto John "come forth and receive eternal life". but John came fifth and won a toaster........

Useful for muddy fields too as are snow socks, in some situations sock are even better than chains.

You may find that in some places obligatory winter kit starts in October.

There is snow at the moment both in Alps and Pyrenees
