Pirelli Cinturato a mistake?

Have had these for a week, put about 400 miles on them. At 46K my OEMs were down to 4/32 in front and then I found a nail in the RR. The Pirelli's are noticeably quieter and felt firm on dry pavement but felt terrible at 70mph over standing water (raining heavily and water standing in tire grooves). Felt like they were on the edge of hydroplaning and dangerous. The GOM also went down from about 42 to 38 but I was expecting that.

Got them at Discount Tire. Bought them based on good reviews but when I look at the tread design it doesn't look very aggressive. Not sure if I got the "Plus" version or what the difference is. Thinking about trying to return them.

40 psi cold, lug nuts OK.

Tires say Cinturata Strada All Season. What does "Plus" get you?
Just to be clear I was far from the fastest car on the road, just getting around the semi's. Unfortunately the studded tires widely used around here result in water collecting tire grooves in any pavement not recently laid.
