Exclamation Behavior of my Mustang in the rain.

It is equiped with the Original Pirelli 255/40ZR19 tires and wih heavy rain, the behavior becomes problematic by speed (above the +/- 60 miles range)
Is this due to the car or the tires or ...
Does anybody have the same experience ?

Thanck in advance for some info !

the Pirelli's are not that good in the rain, first of all they need to warm up, takes about 30 minutes.
guess you'll better switch to winter tires for this season, autumn and winter time.
Maybe it might be of any help switching the settings to rain/snow.
Good luck!

19's are summer only

I have the stock 17" all season hancooks that are H rated-130 mph. They stick in the rain as long as the traction control is on. In the dry they are great, I've pulled .85 G's !
The low profile performance tires are only good for the track really, so many guys get them for looks instead of driving in the real world. You can hit even a bridge expansion joint and bend the rim as there is no sidewall to absorb the bump.

Factory ordered 2015 Mustang, Ruby Red, Automatic, Aluminum spare tire with jack.
