    Just keep in mind, that a M+S rating doesn't mean the tyre is suitable for cold weather operation. It is just a classification of the tread, not the compound. Winter tyres, as they are required in several countries in Europe for the winter season, have an additional snowflake symbol, indicating the tyre compound is a cold weather compound.
