Here's an example with Italian signs:

It says where it applies and when and says: either winter tyres or non-skid

Here's another one without temporal qualifiers:

This is the German sign for obligatory non-skid chains:
According to administrative regulations, it may only be present at times
where the chains are required. It doesn't apply to motorbikes or bicycles
and it also implies a speed limit of 50kph.

In some countries there are default requirements for M+S tyres, in others
there aren't or are based on actual conditions. There's a nice summary for
Europe here (in German ;-) ):
This is something that likely falls under the "do not map the legal
situation without supporting real life objects" ban. Those sign-posted
prescriptions above don't (IMHO).
