    Can anyone confirm if the Continental 19” tires are M+S (Mud and snow) rated? Live in Vancouver and think this is all I will need if it is standard.

    They are M+S but rated all seasons, but if you are heading near the hills or into the valley, you'd need proper winter tire (M+S with mountain logo). I found the standard 19" that came with my S wasn't good enough for winter driving in Metro Vancouver, hence bought a set of winter tires and rims.

    Thanks Corsair! I thought M+S rating was better than all seasons?

    M+S is essentially all seasons , designed for light traction in snow ... but judging by the amount of dump we had the past 3 seasons. ..... plus Tesla repair work ain't fast and cheap .....

    All-season tires vs. winter tires
