Q: Excessive tire wear on 2008 BMW 335xi

I switched from run flat tires to Continenteal Conti Extreme Contact DWS and the back tires wear out in less than 6,000 miles. I put on another set of the same tires and in 3,000 miles the back tires are hald worn. Is it the car or the tires. I do 98% of my driving on the highway and do not drive crazy. The car is an automatic. Love the car but can not keep replacing tires every two months. The tires are rated for 50,000 miles and Continenteal did nothing about it. This leads me to believe BMW design is a problem because my 2003 330 Xi BMW never had tire wear problems. The car has 43,000 miles on it and will soon be out of warranty. What are my options and do you know what the problem is?
