How Do Car Batteries Go Dead in Bad Weather?

Hydroplaning can happen to almost any vehicle that operates during wet or humid weather. Hydroplaning takes place when thin waves of water form between tire treads and roads. This water-wedge prevents your tire lugs from griping roads, resulting in skids and slides.

Performance vehicles can be at even greater risk of hydroplaning than regular vehicles. Performance cars or trucks often have high-horsepower engines and rear-wheel drive suspension systems that lend themselves well to speed but poorly to grip. If rear-wheel drive vehicle operators attempt to drive their cars during wet conditions, they may be at risk of hydroplaning.

In order to avoid the dangers of hydroplaning, performance car drivers should reduce their speeds during wet conditions. Hydroplaning is known to occur at speeds as low as 20-miles per hour, so performance car operators should take extra care when driving in deep water.

Regular suspension system checks can also keep your performance vehicle in fit condition. At our Saint Cloud area location, we employ skilled and experienced suspension system technicians who can keep your tires and the rest of your suspension properly toned.
