Welcome to the forum.

The obvious question is; how much tread have you got left? MY13 Santorini Black SD4 HSE

The problem with the tyres on the FL2 is that they are quite wide at 235 on the 18" wheels. So they're quite likely to Aquaplane on deep water at speed. Obviously some tyres cope better than others.
I had a dodgy moment some while ago in my first FL2 and that was with new Nokian Weatherproofs on the front. It was a very deep, large puddle after a downpour I hit at about 45mph. MY13 Santorini Black SD4 HSE
