I might just be getting a set of the Verde Plus' soon.

I've had the DWS for 25,000 miles now and 2 years and while they have been awesome tires, the rears have the W gone now and the fronts will have it gone soon too.

I like that the Plus' have a higher number for longevity than the DWS and that is one of the main reasons why I want them, in addition, they are rated very highly, (#1) on TireRack so that doesn't hurt either.


Maybe in a couple of weeks or so as I want to let the DWS' wear down some more before I use the $500 goodwill card to help pay for the tires.

Great tire! Highly recommend. I have 10k on mine. I almost got the DWS06 but after two sets of the original DWS, I wanted to try something else. The DWS tires were good...the Plus version of the Pirelli Scorpions are significantly better. Quiet, smooth, no shake at all.

Thanks Fincher(and toolmanjohn), I knew you were one of the only others on here who have run the DWS so your input is most welcomed.

I thought I'd for sure get the DWS06 but I want more life. I think the DWS is like a 500 rating and the Verde+ has a 640 or something, the highest out of any of the 20" tires out there. If the V+ are even better then that will really be something.

When I first got my TDI, it had the shake. I had made sure all the psi's were correct and then made sure all the lugbolts were all at 133 and the shake was gone.

I was so happy when I had the DWS put on as there was no shake from day 1. I did, however, re-torque all the bolts to 133. I never rotated in the 25,000 miles now and I now know that the rears wear just a little quicker than the fronts but otherwise, there is no uneven wear at all. I also tow so that wears things out a bit quicker too. Quiet, smooth, no shake and longer lasting, what is not to like?

I did think that both the LS2 and the DWS were good in snow as last winter was Snowmageddon up here and I trucked through anything and everything. We had a snow yesterday morning and the worn DWS were not that great at all, the S was missing and the W was missing out back so I knew it was not going to be the best but the Treg still got me to work.

Pirelli also has a $60 rebate going on from 03/18/2016 till 06/2016-something so that will be nice too.

I had seen a 2016 at a dealership with the Verde's on, w/o the +, and thought they looked good, but the + is just the much better version and the parts guy I had spoken to said $1 more per tire for the +.

Perfect pic too as I also have the Exec, and a 2012. We are like twins.

I really like the low-end torque on the 2009-12 TDI. Seems a little better than the 2013-16 version...I test drove a 2016 Exec in September. Gotta add the Auto-hold, warning triangle and aluminum pedals and we'd be exact twins!

For some perverse reason, Pirelli won't introduce the "plus" in Europe - the Scorpion Verde All-Season is a good tyre but the extra life of the "plus" would be a nice bonus.

The new Verde all season plus in 275/45/20 are UTQG rated 740 A A. The same size DWS06 is 560 AA A. Before the rebate the Pirellis are currently about $24 less per tire on Tirerack. I am definitely leaning toward one of the two to replace the stock Goodyears that I have not been impressed with.
