Just got my car back from its second service with 11500 miles on the clock and have been made aware my tyres are getting quite worn.
The depths are as follows:
N/S/F _3_/_3_/_2_ O/S/F _2_/_3_/_3_
N/S/R _2_/_4_/_3_ O/S/R _3_/_4_/_3_
What tyre pressures are you running? I know you said you weren't using the Eco pressures, but those figures with more wear on both the inner and outer shoulders compared to the middle suggest to me that they may have been running under-inflated.
You have just inspired me to go and check mine and I've got 3.5mm consistently across the tread on the Bridgestone Turanza T001s my car left the factory with in 2013. They have done 29k so far and since I've had it (it had done 13k when I got it) I've always run Eco pressure.
I did first wonder if tyre pressures have contributed to the seemingly quick and uneven wear. I can't see the tracking being knocked out already (had no massive impacts with potholes or kerbs recently!).
Decided to go and double check for myself on the back of what you've said.
They're generally 1mm or more above what they've measured them at. I did measure from the wear indicators in places to see if that's where they've done it from and that doesn't quite add up think they must've just decided to knock 1mm off here and there to get some more tyres out of me!!
Part of me wants to believe it was an honest mistake (or that I've not done the depths properly - even I can't mess that up!) but I highly doubt it is. What annoys me is that they'll probably try and Fleece me with brakes pads and discs when they're not needed as well.
