Driving Safely in the Rain

Hydroplaning can happen out of nowhere, and it can seem like you are totally powerless to avoid it. However, it is crucial to stay calm and avoid hitting the brakes hard. You should try to stay going in the center of the lane and avoid sharp turns of the steering wheel.

The most effective way you can stay in control in the rain is to have your tires checked regularly before you hit the road. Preventative tire maintenance is key. Making sure that the tire tread is not worn down too low will give you a better change of staying connected to the road and navigating through heavy rain. Rotating your tires will also help identify any tire tread that is unexpectedly too low.

Ask the service center here at Team Mazda in Caldwell, ID about the tire options available for your car that are specifically designed to help keep you from hydroplaning.
