My 12 2500 CTD says 65F-45R unloaded. 75F-80R loaded. Tires wear fine with those numbers.

Front tires do most of the braking, all of the steering and carry most of the weight when empty. Even with a good aligent, I would expect the fronts to wear faster.
75psi front and 45psi rear on a diesel. Rotate every 5k or so and cross rotate every 10k.

"my rear tires always wore faster than the fronts. It's because they're the ones generating all of the torque to move the rig. Semi trucks are the same way."
This can easily be the case for new hi-torque pickups, and especially when loaded for towing. 4x4s tend to wear fronts more also.
Rotating SRWs will help a lot--rotating duallys properly will cost more than replacing some tires in the long run.

At 941 miles, rears measure more wear than the fronts. SRW, 3500, diesel.

Foot isn't too heavy,...but a cummins with twins sitting out in front of a G56 tranny, will make your tires wear a little quicker even if they were rotated on a regular basis, lol.
