Replacing tires too soon. Tire store recommended 4-wheel

Customer Question

Replacing tires too soon. Tire store recommended 4-wheel alignment. Rear tires both had excessive inside shoulder wear. Tires don't last on Freestyles. This car has 130k miles and this is 5th new set. This alignment issue is new. I'm wondering who to trust to perform an alignment that will last.
JA: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?
Customer: Tires were just two years old. "60k" tires. Rears dead at 25k. Front tires have worn evenly but fast.
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2005 Ford Freestyle SEL
JA: Are you fixing your Freestyle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No. The alignment issue is new. Just fast wear before now.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

I would recommend to go to a tire store that offers lifetime alignments. For example, firestone or treadquarters offers life time alignments if they are in your area. In addition, some small shops still offer the lifetime alignments if you pay an additional amount when getting the alignment done or even if you purchase the tires through them.
