Prevent Hydroplaning by Checking Your Tires

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.

Avoid hydroplaning by visiting our service department at Auto Solutions in Maryville, TN. We will check your tires to make sure they are in good condition.

Getting to All the Details

While you're driving in Maryville, TN, you want everything about your vehicle to shine. This includes your tires. Instead of rinsing them with a water hose or hoping that the rain will wash all of the dirt off of your tires, consider a few cleaning tips that will give you the shine that you want.

Start by soaking your tires with water. This will remove any loose dirt and debris, making it easier to scrub them with a sponge. Clean your tires with the proper solutions. Use a product that is safe for all types of tires if you're unsure of the exact one to choose. Auto Solutions usually has products that can be used on all tires.

When you're cleaning your tires, you need to have a good scrub brush on hand that can remove the brake dust and dirt that is on the wheels and that is on the tires. A smaller brush can be used to get between the crevices of the wheels.
