Ideal for large and fast cars. For everything from wet and cold to snow white.
The new MS plus 77 sets new standards for winter tires from Uniroyal.Its technology has been consistently tailored to suit today's winter conditions on the roads. With excellent performance on wet and cold surfaces and a high level of safety in snow, it is the new force in winter. For compact-, middle- and upper-class vehicles and SUVs. Technology that sets new standards. Uniroyal offers more than 45 years of rain tyre know-how for optimum performance in the wet. Improved safety against aquaplaning. Fits perfectly for example to VW Golf, Peugeot 207 and VW Touareg.
Improved safety against aquaplaning
Improved handling on wet surfaces
Very good traction on snow
Improved safety against aquaplaning. Wide open grooves in the centre and shoulders increase water flow away from the contact surface. At the same time a high void volume increases the patterns ability to absorb water. Both factors lead to more safety under wet road conditions.
Improved handling on wet surfaces. The special compound of rain tyres developed for the wet ensures more effective grip on the road. Large rigid shoulder blocks reduce deformation under load, especially on bends. Both lead to better handling on wet surfaces.
Very good traction on snow. A high number of sipes provide additional gripping edges. This leads to a better interlocking of the tread with the snow and thus better traction.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

26.05.2021 from Adrian Smith Excellent driving experience
14.06.2020 from Ian Sutherland I drive on small country roads and into a grassy field most days. There is a slight gradient in the field and no matter the weather conditions, I have never been stuck with these winter grip tyres.
