Prevent Your Car from Hydroplaning

When a high volume of rain gets lodged between your tire and the road, you may experience hydroplaning. This means you might lose control of your car. If you are traveling faster than 45 mph in the rain, you are more likely to hydroplane.

Although you cannot control the weather, you can take preventative steps to make sure that your tires are safe for all weather conditions. It is important that you have your tires rotated regularly. If your tires are fully inflated, then they are less likely to lose contact with the road. Also, be sure to check that your tire tread is not worn down too much or is unevenly worn. Try to avoid the outer lanes of the road because it is likely that excess water has accumulated there.
