Avoid Hydroplaning with New Tires

Hydroplaning is a dangerous driving situation caused by water under your car's tires becoming too excessive for the weight of your car to push it aside. This causes your tires to lose contact with the surface of the road. This can be like driving on ice and lead to your vehicle fishtailing or spinning out.

The depth of the tread on your tires directly affects the amount of water they can shunt away to maintain contact with the road. As your tires wear, the depth of the tread is reduced until your tires become smooth. This causes hydroplaning and other traction issues, which can make your car's handling more difficult during slippery road conditions.

At Volvo Cars of Burlingame, our service technicians can inspect your tires and let you know if they could use replacement. Bring your vehicle to our service center in Burlingame, CA for an inspection today.
