Caution: Weather Ahead | New Orleans Auto Care

The New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire can help you stay safe on wet roads.

According to news reports, folks in Denver were surprised this week by an early snowstorm. That's not something that we in New Orleans generally have to worry about. But we do have to worry about rain, which has a similar effect of making roads slick and hazardous for drivers.

Wet pavement can be especially hazardous if your tires aren't in good shape. As Consumer Reports points out, "Worn tires—especially bald ones—can be deadly on wet roads, where the grooves aren't deep enough to channel water out from beneath the tread. The result is hydroplaning, where the tread skims the water's surface and the vehicle no longer responds to the steering wheel. Wet-weather braking and snow traction also decrease as tires wear. ...

"Reduced wet-weather braking can be even more dangerous than hydroplaning. Compared with new tires, those with half their tread depth took 3 to 6 feet longer to come to a stop from 40 mph on our wet track with the antilock braking system engaged."

You know what that means: Time to check your tires. It's also time to replace old, worn tires.
