The ability of a human can tread water varies on many variables. The temperature of the water, a persons body fat, and the will to live. A marine has tread water for 22 hours in warm waters.

How does a car hydroplane?

Hydroplaning occurs when the tires' tread is unable to expel enough water to maintain a rubber contact patch on the road. The function of tread is to allow the "high" part of the tread pattern to cut through by forcing water (and other road grit) into channels and grooves surrounding the tread blocks. When the water gets too deep for the tread grooves to cut through it and force it between the tread blocks, the "high part" of the tread blocks lose contact with the pavement and looses traction by hydroplaning.

Why is tire tread important?

Increases grip if there is water on the roadway the water can enter the holes in the tread and not interfere as much with the rubber contact with the road.

How does the tread make wet-weather driving safe?

The tread of tires is designed to channel the water between the ridges, so that the upper tread stays in contact with the road. The tread gives water someplace to go as the tire rolls. It channels away from the surface of the tire so that the tire will make contact with the road. That is why it is easy to hydroplane on worn tires. The water can't get out from under the tire fast enough and you end up riding on water.

How does the tread affect the grip of the tire?

it affects it greatly. For racing, the best tyres to use are called "slicks". This means that there is no tread on the tyre. The more tyre you have, the more grip you have. Road cars, however, need to have tread because the tread helps to grip in gravel and water. The tyre for normal road use is also designed so that it can get rid of the water that gets caught in the tread. As well, inflation of the tyre affects the surface area if under-inflated; the tread area collapses, even if you don't see much change with the naked eye. It makes a "mushy" less effective grip. If over-inflated, the tread has more pressure exerted on it from within, which widens the tread and lessens the grip on road surfaces.
