Fight hydroplaning with good tires.

If you live in an area that gets a lot of rain or if your current tires just don't move through water, you may want to consider a new tire that resists hydroplaning.

What is hydroplaning? It occurs when one or more of your tires are lifted from the road by the water trapped beneath it. If you drive through a big puddle, you might notice a splash of water accompanied by a quick jerk of the steering wheel as your vehicle pulls toward the puddle—that's hydroplaning. And it's never fun. To choose a tire that effectively resists hydroplaning, you'll want to look for a tread pattern with a repeated "V" design. The grooves created by the tread pattern channel water away from the tire to keep you, the driver, in control. We recommend the following tires to help resist hydroplaning:

Michelin HydroEdge with GreenX (Passenger All-Season)

Michelin Pilot Sport A/S (Ultra High Performance All-Season)

Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 (Max Performance Summer)

Shop all tires by vehicle.
