Off-Road Vehicles and Hydroplaning

Hydroplaning is a serious hazard for vehicles that operate on paved roadways. Cars and trucks that operate on unpaved roads may also be in danger of falling prey to this dangerous phenomenon.

Hydroplaning happens when cars or trucks are moving over roadways in wet or stormy weather. As vehicle tires move over the road surfaces, liquids or mud can form barriers between tires and roads. This causes a loss of traction as well as a loss of control, with unpredictable results.

If you drive an off-road vehicle and you enjoy operating it in wet, muddy conditions, you can ensure better performance by driving responsibly. Always drive slowly enough to maintain traction, and use tires with the proper kinds of treads, lugs, and grooves. In addition, you should have your tires rotated and inspected regularly.
