The OE Pirelli Scorpion Verde tires are the version with high rate of wear (no tread wear warranty implied) . The old aftermarket version had a 45,000 mile tread wear rating. The new Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus have a 60,000 mile rating.
Thanks much, turns out I have a 50K warranty on my current as well. As the car only has 30K.... The issue may be VW recommended rotation vs. Pirelli. I may be in a catch 22. I will try with the dealer early this week and touch back with you.
