Re: Diesel Pusher hydro-planing by Alaskan
Post New Message I would vote with Don. Hydroplaning is very definetly connected to tire air pressure. Since your tire is actually "skiing" along the surface of the water and not contacting the roadway, I would never attempt to "power out of it" or maintain that speed. By all means slow down and let your tires regain contact with the pavement. I also would never use the cruise control in such conditions. Once at a safe speed, I would use the exhaust brake... One other thing I do is try to drive outside of the grooves when the road has standing water.
Happy Motoring,
Butch - Nancy Lake, Alaska
