Why Get Tire Replacements?
The ability to control a vehicle depends on the grip between the tires and road surface. Tires do not require tread designs or even considerable tread depth to provide grip on dry surfaces. However, tires do require tread designs with sufficient depth to generate traction on wet, snow-covered and slushy roads. So tread design essential to guide water and slush from between the tire and the surface of the road.
When water pools on the road surface, the depth of the water, the speed of the vehicle, and weight of the car, as well as the design and depth of the tires’ tread mutually govern when and if the vehicle will hydroplane and how quickly a vehicle can stop in an emergency.
Naturally, the tire tread will wear down over the life of the tire, and decrease the depth of its grooves. While this occurs so slowly that you will not notice it visibly on a day-to-day basis, eventually there will come a time when you will detect the car slip in the snow, aquaplane in the wet or just not stop in as efficiently on slippery surfaces. If the water is unable to escape fast enough, your tires will be forced to aquaplane (float) on top of the water, resulting in a loss of traction and increased stopping lengths.
