Preventive Steps Are Best When Dealing with Possible Hydroplaning

Prevention is always better than reaction, especially in a situation such as hydroplaning. Reacting after the fact can be dangerous and very scary. There are a few preventive measures that you can take to reduce the chances that your vehicle ever hydroplanes.

One thing that you should never do is keep cruise control turned on in rainy conditions. You, rather than your vehicle, need to be in control so that you can react in a timely fashion if need be. Another preventive step that you can take is to routinely rotate and balance your tires. Tire rotation and allows for a more uniform wearing of your tires. This along with balancing promotes better traction and handling in hydroplane conditions.
