The risk of aquaplaning is big when there is a lot of water on the road surface. Aquaplaning happens when the tires are not able to push away the water that is present on the surface. This causes the tyre to float on top of the water surface and the tyre loses contact with the road.
Good quality summer tires that have implemented design elements into the tread that help prevent aquaplaning. With these innovations you can push more water to the side and you can do it faster, this is an important step at reducing the risk of having it happen.
