Front tyres wearing quicker than rears?

I fitted Mich super sports a while back and have noticed that the fronts are wearing quicker than the rears (fronts are wearing evenly), never had this on a rear wheel drive car before, is it normal?

I would get alignment done. toe settings are probably off and the tires dragging, which can still look like its wearing evenly. my cars lowered, I'm on my second sets of rears and first set of fronts still. my rear tires wear 2-3 times what the fronts are wearing.

Yeah all my BMWs have worn out at 2 sets of rears to one set of fronts there abouts

My GC has just had its first set of rears at 20k and the fronts still have 4mill on them

Get it to a tracking place for the to have a look

my rears are lasting around 7-8k miles, I guess I got a heavy right foot.

Agree with the tracking - my rears lasted 12k miles and the fronts still have plenty of tread at 25k.
