Simple solution.....DON'T DRIVE!!!

just remember: In the face of water. wider tires are your enemy I've had cars that would hydroplane no matter what I tried. Especially out here in VA where it can rain pretty hard and the choice of tire didnt make too much difference. On your average rainy day a good wet traction tire can work wonders, but if you're caught in a bad storm and the water on the road is getting pretty deep then theres nothing really you can do but slow down. Especially in a rear driver.

The speed you actually hydroplane at is 9 times the square root of your tire pressure . Now the traction you have before you go up on plane is directly related to the tread. You probably have a tire thats just not water friendly.
