Prevent hydroplane crashes by mounting your newer tires on the rear axle

Posted on June 15, 2015 11:32 am under Automotive Defects

Experts believe that tires with less traction on your rear axle may contribute to injurious, sometimes even fatal, hydroplane crashes.

Half-worn tires placed on any of the axles are less likely to bite the wet surface of the road when speeding or maneuvering a curve, causing the car to slide uncontrollably.

On the other hand, if you mount tires with less traction to the front axle, your steering wheel would allow you to feel if the tires are losing traction on the road. This would enable you to coast or reduce speed, preventing your car from spinning out of control.

Hydroplane crashes may happen due to incorrect tire installation, or defective rubber.
