Tirerack's ratings show the Michelin Primacy MXM4 as roughly in the middle of the Grand Touring All-Season category with its wet performance somewhat above the middle of the range. At least this is an average of a whole bunch of anecdotal opinions.
Note that none of the other cars hydroplaned in that section.

You also ignored how many owners blame these tires on TMC in that thread

Additionally tirerack uses correct tire pressures
