I personally rotate my tires every other oil change which is aprox every 6,000 miles. Some will say once a year, but I just do it every other oil change.

Sounds like it could be an alignment issue.

Rotating your tires is always a good idea, about every 6k as stated. Having the front end checked, is also a good idea. A good alignment shop, should be able to spot any problems, that may cause premature wear. Some tires are more sensitive to uneven wear than others, as well. I have had tires that had to be rotated every 3k, or they got real choppy. Try the rotation first, and pay attention to how the wear, from that point. No telling how long those tires have not been rotated.

do they look like the threads are more worn out on the inside? (of each thread not the entire tire)
