Have not noticed any problems with the driving, this will be the 5th set of tires for front this yr. The tires are wearing even with slight feathering.

Go to the Repairpal estimator and under the common problems section it talks about excessive tire wear.

Irregular and premature tire wear can be caused by the lower control arm bushings cracking and causing excessive movement at the control arm pivot point. Ball joints can also wear out prematurely, causing similar tire wear symptoms.
