I knew these tires would cost me...

I was driving on a windy road out here in Italy. It was raining the rear tires broke away from the pavement (35 mph) I steered in the direction of drift to correct when all four tires became un responsive and proceeded off the road through/over a sign and into the bushes... Hoping she's not totaled geico Italy doesn't open till Monday but the frame damage is nothing to sneeze at.

The thing that worries me is the pole going under the car. I know that I'm missing a stabilizer under the wheel that took out the pole. And I'm in Italy if they can't get the parts I'm screwed. I hope your right though I can't buy another until I return stateside.

PZeros aren't good in the rain? They sure are sticky dry. I'm new here, please tell me more.

The tread depth appears minimal in the photos.

Agreed, mostly plastic parts that broke. You wouldn't have been traveling fast enough to bend the frame. Still sucks, look into Continental Extreme Contact DWS. Amazing grip

You are blaming the tires for lack of ability to drive with some cautiousness?

Living in Florida for 18 years and it rains almost constantly during the summer, I've gotten used to driving in the rain. Owned this car 2+ years and haven't had any issue in the rain with the P-zeros, the only time I had an issue was stepping on the gas too hard when I first got the car in a storm (fish-tailed a little bit but got it under control). 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.

Did you have TC/ST off? With those on, I've skid multiple times before in the rain but the car auo-adjusted itself, at speeds slightly higher than 35 mph.

Pzeros have scared me a couple of times in the rain on the highway. The hydro-planing felt like I was driving on ice. But that was due to tread worn thin and driving at higher speeds. At 35 mph? Must have hit an oil slick to lose control at that speed.
