You're driving along in a rainstorm when you suddenly lose control of the vehicle. You're hydroplaning. What do you do? Well, if you take a few preventive measures, it's a lot less likely that you'll find yourself in a position where you have to do a lot of quick thinking. At Bernardi Volvo Cars Natick in Natick, MA, we want to know that you and your family are safe, so we've put together a few tips that you can use before you even drive in a rainstorm.

One of the easiest ways to make sure that your tires are in good shape so that you don't hydroplane is to make sure that they're properly inflated. Some people like to over inflate their tires to try to get better gas mileage, but that's really not the best approach when you want to have tires that wear well and will perform well in the rain.

Instead, you should have tires that are inflated to the manufacturer's recommendations for the correct psi. You should also regularly have your tires rotated to ensure that the tread is wearing evenly.
