Do I need snow tires?
Put simply, it’s a good idea. In places where winter weather conditions can be harsh – and yes, that means those of us here in Indiana – Honda does recommend the use of snow tires. (As always, you should check your Owner’s Manual for specific information.)
Snow tires have special tread patterns that help dig down into snow and ice. Plus, the softer rubber used on winter tires helps them maintain their flexibility in cold weather, making it easier for them to conform to various road surfaces.
Bottom line, these tires are designed to have good grip. They will help you avoid getting stuck and improve your ability to stop and steer.
