The M3 CSL came with Michelin Pilot Sport Cups that are semi-slick, they were very obviously track tyres and would be horrible in the wet. The PZero Corsas (despite Corsa being Race in Italian ) seem to be more of a combination road and track tyre. Pirelli claim the wet performance is "Excellent".

The problem seems to be the low temperature performance.
