Quality Tires Help Prevent Hydroplaning

Did you know that the quality of your tires has a direct effect on whether or not your car will hydroplane when roadways are wet? When water builds up between the road surface and the tire tread, it can feel like you are gliding on ice, with little braking or steering control. But having good quality tires with sufficient tread on them can significantly reduce the chance your vehicle will hydroplane.

Tires that are bald or have uneven tire tread increase the risk of hydroplaning during rain storms and wet weather. If your tires are not properly balanced, it also increases the likelihood that your car will experience hydroplaning on wet road surfaces.

It may be time to make an appointment at our service department for a tire rotation and balance. Our technicians can test tire tread depth and recommend quality replacement tires to reduce your hydroplaning risk.
