There are several good all season tires that do very well in the rain and in the performance dept.

Hmm, never had issues with the PZeros in the rain. At least not until they basically had zero tread left on them, and then it was still managible as long as I didn't jump on the gas too hard. I'm think it's more the driver.

It's George Bush's fault.

Good news is the repair shop says they can get it done in roughly 35 days. The streets in Vicenza are made of a different material that is less permeable by water when it rains. That mixed with the heavy traffic out hear in Italy probably left a good mixture of oil and water under the tires. While I will admit the perellis had a good 12,000 miles on them. I feel like the tread being worn to unsuitable levels that quickly is a bit extreme. Either way you cut it hard to do any "driving" when the tires aren't in contact with the road... Just saying. Thanks to all for the posts though. I'll follow up with final costs and actual time lines ect.

That really sucks to see. Glad you are ok. When my p zeros wore down. And I mean not even at tread wear indicators yet I was shocked at how terrible they were in the rain. I had a close call hydroplaning in them and took them off the next day.

12,000 on PZero's is pushing the rear maybe, but the front broke too. The rain probably came with colder weather as well and we know how they work in the cold. Glad they are not on my car anymore that's for sure.

im sure that may be true, but before my wife got her hydroedge tires on her car, i wouldnt ride with her in the rain. For wet pavement, I would have to say that they are one of the best tires out there. they work pretty good on dry pavement too

Maybe we should start a separate thread for this, but I would love to know how many miles people are getting out of their P Zeros. If I have to replace mine at 12,000 as some have suggested I would be pissed!

I haven't had any issues with my P Zeros in rain yet, but my car has about 12,000 miles and more than half of that has been on winter tires.

There have been probably a few hundred threads already on how many miles are people getting from their Pzeros. It all depends on how you drive. I was going through rears every 16K miles (totally bald). i switched to BFG comp IIs and they have lasted 20K with still a decent amount of tread. But they aren't as sticky either.

I've got 30K out of mine but I drive like a grandma. They are due to be replaced though.

Wow I can't believe you bought more than one set. I guess it depends what you use your car for. Mine is a daily driver so I will definitely be replacing them with something more suited to that duty than the racetrack.

LOL... You think a Camaro with PZeros are bad in the rain try a Lightning with F1s! But I also hate the PZeros. I got the General Gmax and they're so much better for daily driving and cut through standing water very well.

The tread depth appears minimal in the photos.

I've never had an issue with the p - zeros in the rain. You just have to respect the gas pedal more and use common sense.
