What does M+S mean?
In Europe, the M+S designation stands for Mud and Snow i.e. winter tyres. The tread pattern and rubber compound have been specially designed for wintery conditions. Whereas the elasticity of summer tyres starts to seriously diminish under 7°C, thus worsening road contact, winter tyres consist of a special rubber compound with high levels of silicon or natural rubber that perform well under cold conditions. Especially on wet or icy roads, M+S tyres hold the road extremely well and out-perform summer tyres when it comes to braking, steering and accelerating.
