Post Mud & Snow Tyres
How do they feel on the road, is there much difference? Noise? Speed? Handling?

No, i have Michelin 135-15 M&S. Runs very well and they are marvellous in the snow. I don't know if they are still in production. I think you have to look for tyres for the Smart they have the same size.

I just bought Minerva S310 tyres, 145 65 15 m+s. They cost euro 30,- a piece including free delivery.. Just a little bit lower then the 125x15.

Feels good dry and wet.. No snow yet..

Geo

With the wider tyre, does it affect the lock at all?

Yes but you can adjust that. Friends on your suspension height.

I bought a pair of rims with S&M tyres on, I should try them. Would the tread type be ok for MOT?
