I had D697's on my old Challenger and also found wet weather grip to be a "challenge". I always put it down to the car being a bit top heavy (and no traction control) rather than the tyre.

Not a cheque for me but probably 4k worth of rectification for me. Dept fair trading and ACCC is worth pursuing if you believe you have a legitimate grievance.
