I flew the aircraft down to flight mins. I saw the runway approach lights. I continued to land the aircraft. Visibility deteriorated. I landed, and applied the brakes. Approaching the end of the runway, I computed the aircraft would not stop, due to wet pavement. I went off the end of the runway onto the dirt overrun. I turned the aircraft around, and taxied back onto the runway. I then turned onto the taxiway, and the right tire blew. I called the tower, and reported the incident. A new tire was put on, and the aircraft was taxied to parking. No evasive action was required. Contributing factors: no WX report from the tower. Aircraft cleared to land, and landed successfully 3 mins before me. The situation occurred because of deteriorating WX conditions. To prevent recurrence. Require the tower to give current WX conditions during times of low visibility, before clearing aircraft to land. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter states he was contacted by the FAA and they determined he should recertify for his ATP. He obviously complied but upset that it cost him close to $1500 to do so. Passed it just fine.

Title: CHARTER SMT ENCOUNTERS DETERIORATING WX ON LNDG ROLL. POOR BRAKING, RUNS OFF RWY.
Narrative: I FLEW THE ACFT DOWN TO FLT MINS. I SAW THE RWY APCH LIGHTS. I CONTINUED TO LAND THE ACFT. VISIBILITY DETERIORATED. I LANDED, AND APPLIED THE BRAKES. APCHING THE END OF THE RWY, I COMPUTED THE ACFT WOULD NOT STOP, DUE TO WET PAVEMENT. I WENT OFF THE END OF THE RWY ONTO THE DIRT OVERRUN. I TURNED THE ACFT AROUND, AND TAXIED BACK ONTO THE RWY. I THEN TURNED ONTO THE TXWY, AND THE R TIRE BLEW. I CALLED THE TWR, AND RPTED THE INCIDENT. A NEW TIRE WAS PUT ON, AND THE ACFT WAS TAXIED TO PARKING. NO EVASIVE ACTION WAS REQUIRED. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: NO WX RPT FROM THE TWR. ACFT CLRED TO LAND, AND LANDED SUCCESSFULLY 3 MINS BEFORE ME. THE SITUATION OCCURRED BECAUSE OF DETERIORATING WX CONDITIONS. TO PREVENT RECURRENCE. REQUIRE THE TWR TO GIVE CURRENT WX CONDITIONS DURING TIMES OF LOW VISIBILITY, BEFORE CLRING ACFT TO LAND. CALLBACK CONVERSATION WITH RPTR REVEALED THE FOLLOWING INFO: RPTR STATES HE WAS CONTACTED BY THE FAA AND THEY DETERMINED HE SHOULD RECERTIFY FOR HIS ATP. HE OBVIOUSLY COMPLIED BUT UPSET THAT IT COST HIM CLOSE TO $1500 TO DO SO. PASSED IT JUST FINE.
