I have the same car in a 1995. I did not find that they wore out quickly, but were expensive to replace because they are a "one of a kind" tire.
Meaning that they hose you on the price because the tires are almost exclusive to the V-6 Passat. I just put new 205/55/r15 tires on my car instead of the ones you mentioned.
They are a little thinner (10MM) but are about half the price and have a better rating. Look into it.
Also, as far as the tire ware, check the alignment. Also check the tire pressure often. Hope this helps and is not too late as I just
caught your post and went through the same tire scam.
