When it rains, you should generally avoid driving as much as possible. However, we know that there are times when you absolutely must drive in the rain. And since your friends here at Select Automotive want you to stay safe, we have decided to offer you some tips on how to avoid hydroplaning.

Hydroplaning typically occurs when you drive into more water than what your tire can handle. Whenever you know you are going to be driving in the rain, avoid heavily flooded areas. You may hydroplane easier in areas with more water, and this will be more dangerous. You should also never drive with cruise control on if it is raining.

Making sure to keep your tires properly maintained is another good way to avoid hydroplaning. Keeping your tires properly inflated, rotated, and taken care of. If your tires are in need of routine maintenance, make sure you visit the dealership in order to keep your car running safely.
