Fast Speeds Contribute to Hydroplaning

Whenever there's rain in the forecast, all of us at Napleton Lincoln in Glenview in Glenview, IL like to remind customers to slow down their driving speeds. Fast speeds contribute to hydroplaning, the condition in which water builds up under the tire faster than it can be dispersed, causing the vehicle to slide atop the water, making the driver lose braking and steering control.

Plan on decreasing your road speed by at least 5 to 10 mph when it's raining. It's also important to avoid fast accelerations that increase the risk of hydroplaning, especially when passing another car on the road. But reduced speed isn't the only way to avoid hydroplaning. Make sure your vehicle is outfitted with quality tires that are well balanced and rotated regularly. Worn tire treads atop water create ripe conditions for dangerous hydroplaning.

Our Napleton Lincoln in Glenview service center offers tire rotation and wheel balancing, in addition to worn tire replacement.
