do a visual inspection , grab a wheel and see if it moves side to side , if something is loose you'd better take care of it before it breaks , sounds like your front struts are worn out also

and ball joints too , all of these will make that tire wear uneven

Idler arm, also. I just replaced mine. Steering tie rod ends could be bad also. A shop will determine the problem quickly.
