Safety Tips on How to Avoid Hydroplaning

The term hydroplaning means that your car tires are not able to push aside water fast enough, so the vehicle starts to leave the surface of the road. These safety tips will help you keep more tread on those wet roads.

Before even heading out on the road, take a look at the condition of the tire treads. If they are worn, have them replaced. Be sure you are having the tires rotated on a regular basis so that all four tires are wearing evenly too.

Once on the road, be sure you travel in the tire tracks left from the car in front of you. That will reduce the amount of rain needed to be dispersed by the tires. Never drive on wet roads with your cruise control activated.

Don't forget, you come see us at FIAT of Vancouver and one of our tire specialists will gladly look over all the tires and make any recommendations if needed.
