Poor tires are a main cause of hydroplaning. When your tires don't have enough tread, they are not able to grip the road. If your tires don't have enough air in them, this can also impact how your car grips the road.

Be careful when driving in rainy weather. Avoid taking turns too quickly and give yourself enough room with the car in front of you so that you don't have to slam on your brakes. Some defensive driving strategies can make a big difference when you are worried about hydroplaning.
