When you need new Madison tires or Madison tire care and repair, see the experts in Madison tires at any one of Madison Auto Care's seven NAPA service centers.
One of the big national weather stories today is Hurricane Gordon, which came onshore last night on the Gulf coast. Here in Madison, we don't have to worry about Gordon, or other hurricanes, but we do have to deal with one hurricane-like feature - rain and flooding. That's right, weather experts are predicting thunderstorms and/or showers today.
You know what THAT means - rain-slicked roads that make driving hazardous.
And driving can be even more hazardous on slippery roads if your tires aren't in good shape. Research from AAA reveals that "driving on relatively worn tires at highway speeds in wet conditions can increase average stopping distances by a staggering 43 percent, or an additional 87 feet — more than the length of a semi-trailer truck — when compared to new tires."
AAA urges drivers to check tread depth, replace tires proactively, and increase following distances significantly during rainy conditions.
“Tires are what keep a car connected to the road,” said John Nielsen, AAA’s managing director of Automotive Engineering and Repair. “Even the most advanced safety systems rely on a tire’s basic ability to maintain traction, and AAA’s testing shows that wear has a significant impact on how quickly a vehicle can come to a stop in wet conditions to avoid a crash.”
