Question. What's the normal interval between brake pads wearing out and is it normal for the insides pads to wear faster than the outside pads? Also, is it weird the back brake pads wore out before the fronts?

I think they should last about 50,000 miles if you don't drive aggressively.

My inner/outer pads wear evenly but I have seen many people complain about the inner pad wearing faster. If this happens I would guess you have a problem with the guide pins being dirty or an issue with the caliper piston not retracting properly.

The rear pads should last twice as long as the fronts, you you defiantly have some sort of dragging brake issue if the rears are wearing faster.
