How to Avoid Hydroplaning

One of the most frightening experiences you can encounter is losing control of your vehicle through hydroplaning. It happens when there’s more water than your car can push aside. When you feel as though your car is gliding, it’s because the wheels are being directed by the water. That water has come between the wheels and the road’s surface.

There are ways to help avoid such a situation. One of the best deterrent to hydroplaning is to keep your tires properly maintained. They are able to create the traction they need when they have appropriate air pressure and tread. They should also be rotated and balanced every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. It helps them to wear more evenly.

When you have questions about your tires or any other aspect of your car’s maintenance, don’t hesitate to stop in to our service center here at Lincoln of Smithtown in Saint James, NY. One of our knowledgeable service members will be happy to assist you.
