Your vehicle’s tires make constant contact with the road. Over time and with normal wear-and-tear, your tires become worn down and excessively used. Driving with worn down tires can be dangerous when braking on wet or snow-covered roads, causing hydroplaning. Hydroplaning occurs when the grooves on the surface of the tires are so worn down and bald, that they don’t channel water or slushy snow out from beneath the tread. When hydroplaning occurs, your treads only skim the water’s surface due to the baldness of the tire, and the steering wheel won’t respond, potentially causing you to lose control of your vehicle. Keep your tires in good working condition, for your own safety and for the safety of others around you.
