Blame it on the Rain

Friday, February 26, 2010 by Logan Woodworth

Driving in the rain is rarely an enjoyable experience for anyone. Nonetheless, many drivers underestimate the dangers of hydroplaning. Tread depth is a key contributor to a tire's ability to reduce hydroplaning and increase safety.

Ensuring your tires have proper tread depth can greatly reduce your risk of a rear-end collision during wet conditions.

As you can see in this video a vehicle with tires worn to 4/32" will take nearly twice the distance to stop during emergency braking. As you will see, proper tread depth can be the difference between avoiding an accident and causing one.
