19" tire wear on 550GT

I have a significant problem with tire wear on my 2010 550GT with 19" tires and sport package. The Pirelli P Zero tires have 19K miles on them. The outside edges of both front tires are showing very uneven feathering. Every third tread block has a sharp raised edge. The problem only appears on the outside edges, and the car is properly aligned.

I took the car to the dealer and they said this was normal wear for a 550GT with staggered tires. The rear tires show similar but less pronounced wear patterns. This results in an annoying vibration in the steering wheel a lower speeds, which is lessen noticeable at higher speeds. The tires still have 6/32 of tread, but the dealer says they need to be replaced to solve the vibration.

Have other 550GT owners with the staggered setup experienced similar tire wear results?
