This is a good time of year to check the tread and condition of your tires. With the “rainy” season approaching driving on severely worn or bald tires can be very dangerous. Storms like the one we had yesterday are always a reminder to me to check the tires on all of our vehicles. Fresh tires make driving in the rain much safer and can drastically reduce the likelihood of hydroplaning.
Deeper treads on the tire help displace water away from the contact patch on the tire. The contact patch is the area of the tire that is in direct contact with the road. By displacing the water the tire is less likely to hydroplane, or ride on top of the water, thus causing a loss of control.
