I agree.

I suspect that someone wanted an aggressive suspension setup. If you made the rear more neutral, you will probably get better wear.
To be clear, 15K is very short in the absence of track or other aggressive abuse.[/quote]

That shouldn’t be the case, as I had the 4 wheel alignment done according to Porsche specs at a Porsche dealer 3 yrs ago. It is not unheard of to get only 12 -15 k miles on rears in a 911. Plus, my tires are the Bridgestone N1 rated tires which have a very short tread wear rating in comparison to its peers.
