Sidewall Condition and Hydroplaning

While your tires are flexible, they are also responsible for supporting the weight of your car or truck. As such, your tires need to have sidewalls that are in good condition.

The sidewalls of the tire may seem innocuous, but they are actually high-strength components that help your tire to maintain rigidity. Over time, the side walls lose material and breakdown, resulting in a loss of structural strength.

Weakened tires may be more susceptible to the effects of hydroplaning. Hydroplaning happens when layers of water build up between tire treads and roads, and it can be exacerbated by worn out tires.

Worn sidewalls may show few outward signs of wear, but they may nevertheless harbor damage. In order to find such flaws, it is often necessary to use professional equipment and techniques.
