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.

The tread depth appears minimal in the photos.

How in the hell did you determine any tread depth in those pictures???

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.
