Tire wear can be caused by many things. It could be tire pressure, alignment, aggressive driving, tire compounds (eg: sporty vs touring), and etc. I'd be happy with 3 sets of tires in 50K miles, but that's based on softer, stickier tires that wear more quickly.

depends on the wear pattern. are they wearing out more on the inside, outside, middle, or both edges of the tire or are they just wearing out evenly?
