Winter Tyres

German law now requires that winter tyres (marked with a snowflake) or Mud & Snow tyres (marked “M&S”, “M+S” or “M.S”)  must be fitted when the vehicle is used in certain winter/adverse weather conditions, such as black ice; snow; slush; icy roads.   


Unlike other countries, in Germany there is no specified period of time when winter/M+S tyres have to be fitted.

Personnel should seek the advice of their vehicle manufacturer as to the correct tyre specification for use on their vehicle.
