Winter driving with an NSX is something that should not be attempted with OEM or replacement high performance street tires. The cold temperatures make the rubber very hard and with very little traction. However, if your tires have a partial snow rating (ie. DWS) then you should be able to get by for light snowfalls or icy streets as long as you drive cautiously. With the combination of a winter-rated tire, rear wheel weight bias; a limited slip differential, and traction control, you can probably do better than most front-wheel drive cars on all season tires.
There are not a lot of NSX owners that drive their cars in the winter but here’s an article that was published in a 2010 NSXDriver magazine (NSXCA) documenting the experiences of a Canadian owner with approximately 10 years of experience, and in excess of 25k miles, of driving an NSX in Canadian winters on snow and ice and temperatures down to -40F.
