Your tires are responsible for maintaining solid contact and traction with road surfaces. The ability of the tires to do so can be compromised by the phenomenon called hydroplaning.

Hydroplaning happens during wet weather conditions. When vehicles are traveling at speeds approaching 45-mph in such conditions, thin layers of water can form between the tire treads and the road surfaces. This hydroplaning action can rob drivers of steering and speed control.

Many other factors contribute to hydroplaning, including vehicle weight, tire design, and tire inflation levels. Tires that are properly inflated can exert firm pressure against roads. In contrast, tires that are underinflated have more give. Because of this, they may succumb to hydroplaning more easily than properly inflated tires.
