The link you provided is for general discussion of tires. This thread is specifically for the availability and selection of low resistance tires. Your Yokahama Avid Ascend is not a low resistance tire. VW dealer took advantage of you by selling you a generic tire.

Ah, I beg to differ. Are you stating fact or opinion?
I can use the facts:
  • the coasting test is the same as it was on ecopia, from 60 to 30 MPH it goes .7mi
  • the universal coding on sidewall lists treadwear 800, cheap crap is around 400
  • a 100 mile trip at 66 MPH had over 20 mi remaining on GOM, and getting about 4mi/kWh
