But iīm a little interested in the mud/snow tires, I would like to run a little off road and standard road summer tires isnít for that purpose 
What I call mud/snow tyres are the ones with a little * on them. Many also have the letters M/S on them as well. Its these that I call Winter Tyres but I may be wrong. Are the Winters Tyres in Sweden/Norway/Finland different than standard M/S tyres? And then I don't know the proper name for studded tyres, Ice Tyres perhaps
