98100 miles on brakes

My "brake ware" sensor went off at 98,100 miles on my 2013 Touareg. I find that incredible considering the fact that about 10,000 miles were towing (a light 3000# trailer). I also found it amazing that the front rotors measured 31.7mm/32.0 and the rears were 27.70/28mm. Needless to say I did reuse my rotors. The pads I put on were Pagids with a DOT edge code of GG. These exhibit "rare" brake fade. The originals were Brembos with a FF DOT rating which exhibit 0-22% fade at 600F. On one of the many brake pad threads I think I remember someone stating that the T3s went to FF ratings vs a GG rating on the T1s.

I wonder if the GG pads will wear the rotors more due to their less fadeing ability?
