Hydroplaning in your car or truck is an uncomfortable feeling. It requires you to make quick decisions to avoid other vehicles or obstacles. It doesn’t take much water for you to start hydroplaning in your vehicle. All it takes is a few minutes of light rain that mixes with oil residue on the surface of the road to momentarily make you skid and slid across the surface.

Hydroplaning happens when water gets underneath your front tires, which separates your tires from the road. The treads on your tires are designed to channel the water away from underneath the tires so that a majority of the surface of the tires remain in contact with the road. Worn out tire treads and low tire pressure increases the chance of hydroplaning.
