Also, keep an eye on pressures as the temps go down. You get about 1psi change per 10F temp fluctuation (up or down respectively).

If you post more details about the nature of the wear, we can help you better.
+1

All very accurate information. As others have said, if you do mostly in town or lower average speed stop and go driving, the edges of your front tires will wear faster from turning.
