Premature Front tire waer

Is anyone noticing premature front outside tire wear on both tires? I have a X135 with 18k miles on the clock and the outside of the front tires are almost completely bald. Center tread is about 3/4 left. the rear tires show even wear and have about 3/4 tread left. Is this an issue i should bring up to my dealer? Is there a way to get the tires covered under warranty? a side note I don't drive my car very hard.

It sounds like too much toe in on front.

I check all my tires on my s28i every month or so to see how it's going.

Mine seem to be about 7/32 nds all around @ 8k miles.

I drive on track occasionally and may not get 20k miles.

You should start with dealer, but they'll most likely say it's not under warranty since even after alignment it can be thrown off by touching curb.

I tires aren't ruined, yet, you might get a tire store to align and take tires off rims and swap left to right so they still roll same direction.
