Hydroplaning occurs when your tire cannot make contact with the road because there is too much water to push away. However, there are steps that you can take to avoid hydroplaning. One step is to ensure that your vehicle's tires are in good condition before you leave your home.

If they lack sufficient tread depth, they won't be able to get the traction needed to keep you in control of your vehicle. The same is true if they are punctured or otherwise damaged. Damaged tires can be brought to Edwards of Storm Lake to be repaired or replaced in a timely and affordable manner.

You can also avoid hydroplaning by avoiding sudden changes in speed or direction when the roads are wet. It is a good idea to increase your following distance to ensure that you don't need to hit the brakes suddenly or take other evasive action.
