During the sudden thunderstorm, the danger of aquaplaning increases significantly. You can reduce it by installing the good tires on your car. However, the decisive factor in case of aquaplaning is a cold-blooded and appropriate driver’s reaction.

    In the rain, the roughness and gauges on the road fill up with water. It is not always possible to avoid them, especially when overtaking, even if you try hard. The qualitative summer tires reduce the danger of aquaplaning, but they can’t entirely eliminate this risk when driving at high speed in a downpour. Don’t forget to use qualitative 2013 Toyota Highlander headlights for safe driving.

    In the heavy rain, the best way to prevent aquaplaning is to reduce the speed so that the grooves on the tire thread manage to pump the water from the tire contact patch with the road.
    The low pressure increases the danger of aquaplaning, worsens the tire maneuverability and reduces its service life. With the maximum car load, it is recommended to increase the level of tire pressure by 10-15%.
