    I'm a fan

    Until you have experienced them on snow you won't truly believe the increase in grip that you get from them.

    Why not have "snow and mud" tyres and you can use them all year around? They are accepted in Countries that insist on Winter tyres.

    I seem to remember reading on some forum about that changing in some European Countries. Where they used to accept M & S Tyres, you need Winter tyres with the snowflake emblem on the sidewall. I am not sure if it already applies or is coming soon to an Alp near you.
    Happy days are here again.

    Oooh, anyone have any other info? We've just changed back to our Michelin Agilis (M&S) in preparation for our ski touring...

    The former tyres were binned - the Agilis are so much better, and if they come in the correct size our next purchase will be the latest generation of Michelin all weather.

    Edit: Found this, not particularly relevant to the op but useful perhaps to those who have picked this thread up on a search.

    I've been using M&S tyres on my Land Rovers (I converted current one to a motor caravan) for many years now. All the M&S tyres I've had fitted are Winter (snow flake icon) rated.

    That's logical. I suppose the clue is in the name.

    This link might clear up some of the confusion between M & S, All Season and Winter Tyres. It states that not all tyres with the snowflake symbol may be legit (usually the cheaper brands).

    Winter tyres ? don?t rely on the M+S mark! Oponeo.co.uk
