Irregular and premature tire wear can be caused by the front thrust link bushings cracking and causing excessive movement in the suspension. The thrust link bushings are fluid-filled (to help reduce vibration), so if they crack, they will leak oil.

Have gone through 2 sets of tires in the last 4 years and these don't include the original ones. The tires were rated at 50k, but didn't hardly get 20k out of them. Service checked all bushings and suspension and said everything looked good.
