Drive in the Rain Without Hydroplaning

Hydroplaning can seemingly happen out of nowhere, and the best advice to avoid that situation is to avoid driving on uneven or windy roads during heavy rain. If you have to be on the road, do your best to keep distance between you and drivers in front of you. Stay calm to keep yourself from hitting the brake pedal too hard.

You definitely should not be driving in heavy rain if your tires have not been maintained. This means having them rotated and balanced so that there are no surprises with uneven wear. A professional will need to help you with that, but you can always check the tire pressure levels and watch for uneven wear in the tread yourself. Consider replacing tires before they are too worn down. This is true for all driving conditions.
