When we were young, the idea of hydroplaning was exciting and exhilarating. As adults, we realize how dangerous it can be if our car hydroplanes, which takes place when water or rain is coming in front of the car faster than the car can get through it. If you have some concerns, stop at MINI of Charleston and let us give you some tips on how to get through the rainy spells.

We can’t stop the rain or keep the water off the roads, but there are things we can do to prevent hydroplaning.

  • Always use high-quality tires, particularly those made to prevent hydroplaning.
  • Slow down if you’re in the water or see water ahead.
  • Shut off cruise control, so you have maximum control.
  • Balance and rotate tires regularly.

Whether you’re in need of new tires, weather-related tips or some other automotive services, we’re here to help you. Visit us at our Charleston, SC showroom and let us serve you.
