Don't Wait To Have an Accident: Replace Your Tires Before You Hydroplane

If you live in a particularly rainy part of the country, you probably know this feeling all too well. You're driving in the middle of a rainstorm, and then all of a sudden, you're not in control of the vehicle; you're hydroplaning. It can be a terrifying couple of seconds until your wheels make contact with the road again. But there is something that you can do about it.

The first thing that you should do is let off the gas so that the weight of the vehicle forces the wheels onto the road. In the future, you should avoid using cruise control and drive 10 miles per hour below the speed limit. You should also check to make sure that there is adequate tread on your tires and that the wearing is evenly dispersed. You can ensure that the wearing is even by rotating your tires regularly.

If you think that your tires are starting to go bald, don't wait. Come to Sheehy Nissan of Mechanicsville, and we'll put a new set on for you.
