MEDFORD, Ore -- You can officially have snow tires or studded tires on your car. These tires can help give you traction when roads are icy.
The Oregon Department of Transportation says every year these tires do about 8.5 million dollars in damage to state highways. ODOT says those studs are basically ripping through the road.
There are other options besides studded tires. You can use chains that attach to your wheels or non-studded traction tires.
