I don't expect tire selection to help me, I'm just curious.
Not getting the fix. I sold all my stock emissions equipment before dieselgate. Not worth the time, $, and effort at this point to source the stock parts, have them installed, get the fix, and un-install them. Most of the restitution payment would be eaten up in that process and I really don't have time to mess with it as a full time grad student.

I'm at 66k now and have been straight piped since 30k. I just finished installing 2micron's pure and containflow kits so I'm in it for the long haul

*30K Mile Update

-Cross-rotated F->B on this cycle.

-Miles on Tires 30,151

-Avg. Tread Depth 4/32

As always, I measured 4 spots across each tire.


Outside-------------->Inside Inside<-------------Outside

LF- 4/32 4/32 4/32 4/32 -- 4/32 4/32 4/32 4/32 - RF

LR- 4/32 4/32 4/32 4/32 -- 4/32 4/32 4/32 4/32 - RR


Pretty easy normal run this time. Pretty much zero towing and not much spirited driving. Probably 60/40 mix of highway/city driving.

No noticeable difference in noise compared to last rotation and handling seems just fine in the wet and dry. Still happy with them and will probably buy them again since our main road trip car is now the Tig. I really don't have to worry about treadlife as much since my yearly mileage will likely decrease until I start rotations/residency in a couple years.

A few pics of one tire since they are all at the same tread depth...

Also as a side note. I would suggest removing the two lower screws on the inner fender liner behind the front tires and remove the (moist) debris. It was a problem on the mkiv I believe and it seems as though it still is on the mkvi.

Anyway. Thanks for reading this update guys! I'm pretty confident now that with my driving style change that 35k shouldn't be a problem so I'll update then and assess if 40k is doable or if I need to start shopping.

YEP take the scews out of the aft lower inner fender wheelwell liner. Peal it back and get the wet mud and dirt out.
There is foam insulation that gets wet and sits there. I cut it out. This is a RUST maker. My car is rust free because
it his lived below the snow belt. Everyone should take that foam out of the aft lower wheel well.

As far as tires my Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ have 2 years and 20K miles, going strong. I have rotated them about
3 times. I don't have tread depth but eye ball says they are good for at least another 20K.
