Hey

I bought four Pirelli tires in April of 2019 for the V.
2, 235/45 R 19 fronts
&
2, 255/40 R 19 rears

Put them on the car in June of 2019 at 71,000 miles
Currently the car has 76986 on it and the front tires are worn to the wear bars.

They are each worn perfectly even across each side. Car was aligned; drives perfect handles great, air pressures are between 32 and 34 and I keep up with it. The rear tires are still like great shape. What is the deal here? Is it just a soft tire? Called Tire Rack. They do not warranty tread life, but will give a 10 % discount to a new set.

Anyone with this type of experience?

Haven't read anyone else reporting this issue. Sounds like a alignment problem
or serious suspension issues.

Had the car aligned. Drives great; wear is both tires and is even . Air pressure is 32 to 34. What other suspension issues are there to consider? Original shocks still on the car. Car only has 77 K on it.
