Slow down. As your speed decreases, the tire footprint (the amount of the tire’s tread contacting the road surface) increases, providing better traction. You also reduce the risk of hydroplaning should you run into deeper water puddles on the road.
Maintain a safe distance. Even with a good wet-weather tire, be prepared for longer stopping distances on wet pavement.
Choose tires carefully. For optimum performance in the rain, select a tire with tread design and rubber compounds that provide enhanced wet-weather driving capabilities.
Properly maintain your tires. No tire can provide good wet traction once the tread is worn below 2/32nd’s of an inch tread depth. Check your tires regularly and replace them at the proper time. One way to check the depth of your tires is to place a penny (Lincoln’s head down) in the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s hair, it’s time to change your tires. Maintain the proper air pressure in your tires; check your vehicle manufacturer handbook.
