Hi,

I cannot find anything on logo and what they are for?
Apparently the snowflake on a peak mountain is only North American, while the snowflakes in a Square is EU?
Is that correct and both are equal?

what are the rest for? Rain it look it it, but is it aquaplaning?
Why the Sun? Are they OK as summer tire?

And the vawy lines? What's for?

There is also a Mud and Snow letters stamped. M&S
Cheers :)

Thank you :)

Look like they were made for the weather here in Scotland :bannana:

Odd about sunshine tho as I saw a wee demo from Goodyear stating that winter tires on the summer are no good compare to summer tires.

I cannot see it anymore but they were saying the brake response on the winter tire during the summer was worse then the summer tires due to the rubber been too soft.
But indeed, they are good for 8 month a year here ;)
