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.

While I don't think they are the best tires in the world in adverse weather conditions, you have to drive with that in mind . Looks like this can be fixed but keep it in mind next time you're out on the road.

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.
