Is spare tire (full size or temporary) mandatory in Czech Republic? I wonder if any tire would fit in my cars trunk. Right now, I only possess tire patch kit. I drive hatchback.
Assuming you're driving a regular passenger car, the list of mandatory equipment (Czech wiki link) for Czech Republic is:
- Spare spark plugs
- Spare light bulbs
- Car jack
- Spare tire (or tire patch kit, if the tire is patchable; or neither, for run-flat tyres)
- Medical kit
- Emergency warning triangle
- Reflective vest
So no, you won't need a spare tire. The maximum fine for violating this law is 2000 CZK (~75 EUR), however the police rarely checks passenger cars for compliance.
According to the 1968 Vienna Convention a vehicle is legal to drive in a signatory country if it is legal to drive in its country of registration.
So if your car is legal to drive in your country, and your country has signed the Vienna Convention,
you don't have to worry about local mandatory equipment you should not be fined for not carrying the local mandatory equipment.
Note that in some situations, use of such equipment might be required and that requirement would apply to you.
