At Honda of Salem, we make it our business to help drivers stay safer on the nation's roadways. One way to enhance safety during winter months is to employ the proper tire technology. While many drivers choose studded or studless tires during these conditions, drivers of performance vehicles that enjoy a little more pep may find performance winter tires especially useful.

Performance winter tires can allow skilled drivers to operate more aggressively in cold, dry conditions. Performance winter tires employ a number of technologies to make this happen.

Many performance winter tires use widely spaced and deep grooves to move snow and moisture out of the tire path. In addition, the grooves on performance winter tires are often specially slanted to give them extra resistance against the dangers of hydroplaning. Plus, the edges of performance winter tire grooves are usually sharper than other tires, thus allowing for yet more traction and control.
